Information for prospective schools

Canonium Learning Trust is a charitable educational trust in Essex.  It is our purpose to provide every child with the best possible education whilst nurturing their potential and enthusiasm for learning so children leave our schools equipped to tackle future challenges and make positive contributions to society.  We are open to working with like-minded schools who share our purpose and principles.

At Canonium, we work according to three principles: Opportunity, Challenge, and Integrity

Our commitment to Opportunity ensures that we work smartly, making the most of every opportunity to provide our pupils with an outstanding, inclusive, and well-rounded educational experience. Collaboration and continuous professional development are key to achieving this goal.

We also prioritise Challenge, striking the right balance between autonomy and consistency. Our focus on teaching and learning, combined with a culture of learning among our staff, allows us to continually improve and provide feedback to ensure our pupils' progress.

Finally, Integrity is at the heart of our approach. We set high standards for ourselves and our staff, role modelling fairness, respect, and effective communication. We have the courage to do the right thing, resist excuses, and treat others with fairness and respect. We take responsibility and accountability for all our actions.

We welcome informal conversations with any headteachers or governing boards considering joining a trust, so if your school is interested in learning more about us please get in contact :
