Welcome to the Palladian Academy Trust (PAT). Thank you for your interest in our group of schools.

The PAT is a multi-academy trust (MAT) driven by strong values. At the heart of these is the well-being of the young people we work with – and of everyone in our community. We work hard to help our students develop the character that will mean lifelong learning becomes a reality for them. We also help them build other important skills, including resilience, creativity and the ability to solve problems. We are committed to the enrichment of their learning experience, offering opportunities that stretch and support them – which can be life-changing for some.

Chief Executive Officer

about img

We value the professional development of our staff. We are dedicated to enabling them to remain at the cutting edge of their practice, especially in teaching.

We believe that together we are much stronger, and so partnership is our fifth and final value.

The name of our trust is a reference to the local landmark in Prior Park, the Palladian Bridge. Just as bridges connect people, we are outward-facing as a trust, open to change, innovation and collaboration. This is supported by our Trust Board.

The PAT consists of ten schools in the local area: two infant schools, two junior schools, five primary schools, and a secondary school. The academy group is able to take advantage of the freedoms available to academies, allowing us to put learners and learning first at all times.

If you are visiting the PAT for the first time via this website, then we’d love for you to explore our school websites on the Our Schools tab to get to know us better, at least until we are able to accept visitors again.  Please contact Yvonne Miles (details at the foot of the page) with any queries – she can point you in the right direction and would be happy to assist.
