The 1Excellence Multi Academy Trust’s vision is to provide excellence and equity for all children in a Christian context.

The school’s curriculum will provide all learners with a range of opportunities that will excite and inspire, supporting all children so they can achieve individually and make a positive contribution to society. It will be a curriculum that allows and assists children to succeed and make the best of their talent and ability. Developing leadership and an expectation of service will be a cornerstone of the school. Children will have the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning and supporting that of others, and the chance to contribute to and lead developments in their own community.

The education vision for St Thomas’ Church of England Academy is influenced by the needs we have identified in the community and underpins the curriculum design for the proposed school. 1Excellence Multi Academy Trust already gained invaluable experience through the successful management over 2 primary schools and this experience has allowed us to analyse the needs of the local community very accurately and inform the design of the proposed curriculum.
