Welcome to the Beacon Academy Trust
We would like to welcome you to the Beacon Academy Trust, to our teaching alliance, NELTA, and to our schools. Every school, and NELTA, is led by its own Principal; they all team up with me to form the Trust Executive. Alongside Trustees, Governors and leaders we have created a simple, clear narrative for what the BMAT aspiration is by: developing and promoting our shared vision, values and achievements and by explaining the strategic journey for improvement. Our open, collaborative ethos and culture ensures that all Trust staff and students are motivated and supported to develop their own skills, supporting each other to provide the very best education experience possible.

Our Core Principles
The Beacon Academy Trust seeks to secure ‘Excellence for All’ in all of its schools.
The Beacon Academy educational model is based on three key principles:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the principals to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the schools and making sure its money is well spent.
We are delighted with the results of our students this year and would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support. For and on behalf of the Principals and their teams.
