Opening Minds, Opening Doors

We will open minds and open doors for our pupils, our staff and our communities by:

  • Having uncompromising aspirations for all
  • Living our values
  • Having the best people and investing in them
  • Understanding, celebrating and working with our communities

What we value

Our values are our anchor point and underpin all we do as a trust.

We want all of our 18,000 pupils and 2,500 colleagues to realise their full potential by our three values.


for themselves and for the world around them.


always supporting and driving forward together.


in everything they do, even when this means doing something that's hard, not popular or takes a lot of time.

What it means to be part of a multi-academy trust

Our academies can collaborate and share ideas with one another in ways that schools may not be able to.

Should a teacher of history at E-ACT Crest Academy in London wish to seek advice on part of the GCSE history curriculum, they have the option to call on every other teacher of history within the trust for assistance.

Our academies can also rely on support, when it is needed, from our regional experts on both educational and non-educational matters. Our education directors, for example, will work very closely with the headteachers on everything from curricula development to classroom strategy.

For the teacher that joins an academy trust there are significant benefits too. Should a mathematics teachers aspire to become a head of department, they can maintain their employability within the trust but find a head of mathematics job in another of our academies.

Most importantly by being part E-ACT we all feel part of something much bigger. Our responsibilities go far beyond the four walls of a single academy, and extend to people and their communities across the country.
