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.
