Amanda Bennett OBE 
Trust CEO

I am so proud to have seen the development of our Trust over the last 20 years: from the headship of an outstanding school, academisation, gaining designations to the setting up of the Trust. We are a growing MAT with an impressive network of schools, partnerships and designations which share our vision and values. Our SCITT, Research School and English Hub give us unique strengths to ensure all those in our care can be supported on their improvement journeys.

Take our word for it…

I am so impressed to hear that Great Heights Trust is at the forefront of excellence in training and research as a partner of the UCL Early Career Teacher Consortium. I am very grateful to trusts like yours that are going above and beyond to support those who most need it during these extremely challenging times. Thank you for all the work you continue to do.

It has been a privilege to be part of the growth of our MAT over the last few years. What lies at the heart of our ethos is a supportive system where all schools are encouraged to keep their own personal identity. Everyone’s professional development is valued, and collaboration is at the heart of all that we do. Networks of support exist across all roles within the school and staff wellbeing is of the upmost importance.

Joining the Great Heights Academy Trust has provided us with opportunities to access research, school to school support, develop our staff and apply new strategies at Raynville that have resulted in an improvement to our attainment and progress. The networks that have been established ensure high quality resources and advice are shared effectively across the academies.
