A Culture of Flourishing Together

At Canonium Learning Trust we are proud of the strong relationships we build that underpin a culture where all schools and individuals, no matter their background or denomination, are able to flourish together. It is for this reason that we describe ourselves as a family of schools, working together to achieve our shared purpose - to give every child the very best education possible.

Our Purpose and Principles have been carefully chosen to enable our schools to retain their individuality, vision and values. For our church schools, this includes their distinctively Christian character. Through our commitment to delivering the very best education possible, we are confident that we are embracing Jesus’ promise of 'life in all its fullness'. As we work to give every child the very best education possible we choose to prioritise the spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, moral and social development of all.

In our Canonium family spirituality is encouraged. This is demonstrated through our continuous commitment to reflective practice and ways of working that enable every child and adult to express their views, questions, opinions and thoughts.

The culture of our Trust is evident in the look and feel of all of our schools. It is difficult to codify but as a guide, we understand that our ability to live our Purpose and Principles is underpinned by a culture of flourishing together. This unites our people with a shared belief about the identity, meaning and mission of Canonium Learning Trust. As a strong trust, we have a deep sense of collective purpose and prioritise the following:
