About The Shared Learning Trust

  

     

            



The Shared Learning Trust is a unique family of 5 schools, sharing our practice and beliefs to enable young people to achieve more that than they ever thought possible.

 

Our aim is to provide exceptional opportunities for all to be aspirational and develop a passion and excitement for learning!  We will ensure our children, students and adults cultivate a strong self-belief so that they can flourish and develop into successful, well-rounded, self-respecting people.

 

Our 5 academies are as follows:

The Rushmere Park Academy, Leighton Buzzard 2-9

The Linden Academy, Luton 4-11

The Chalk Hills Academy, Luton 11-18

We also offer a fantastic Sixth Form provision for students aged between 16-19, and this is based at both The Stockwood and The Chalk Hills Academy. Including in our Sixth Form provision is our Football Academy Pathway and brand-new Cricket Academy Pathway.

 

The Teaching Trust Teacher training based at The Chalk Hills Academy and is offered to all our colleagues should they be successful.

 

Welcome from Cathy Barr, CEO THE SHARED LEARNING TRUST


Thank you for your interest in our trust and academies and for taking the time to explore this exciting opportunity that we are excited to present to you.

 

I first began working for The Shared Learning Trust, as Principal of The Stockwood Park Academy. Since then, the trust has grown from strength to strength employing some 500 fantastic staff members who serve over 4,000 children within our communities. It is my privilege to be the CEO of our family of Academies and work with each Principal or Head of School to ensure the best possible education in their own academy.

 

Our ethos is simple; to build a collaborative partnership of academies that will provide exceptional educational provision, both in and outside the classroom for all our children.  Our academies ensure students are supported, monitored and encouraged to pursue their aspirations through a wide range of enrichment activities and initiatives. The experience will be challenging, rewarding and memorable.

 

Students enjoy their time at our academies and give back to the wider local community. They are role models and young leaders, who contribute to the collegiate ethos with maturity.
