Who can apply?

  • Any school that shares our vision and wishes to become an academy status school.
  • Any Primary, Special or Alternative Provision school that wants to have greater autonomy and also benefit from membership in a Multi Academy Trust that support each setting for the common good of their children.
  • Any Primary, Special or Alternative Provision school that wants to be part of a family which shares best practice helping all to succeed and the best to excel.

 The three routes to joining the Parallel Learning Trust:

  • Joining as a academy sponsor partner - This is the best route for primary schools identified as requiring a sponsor.
  • Joining as a converter partner - The best route for those primary schools who want to share risk across a group of schools rather than go it alone. Or those schools that need a partner in order to convert to academy status.
  • Joining through an alliance agreement - This is the best route for existing converter academy schools, who now wish to be part of a larger group of schools. Together we can build a self determining future.
