Outstanding Together, Working Together, Learning Together

The Minerva Learning Trust was established in October 2014. Our vision is to provide outstanding education for pupils who are from a wide variety of backgrounds across the city of Sheffield. During 2017-18 the trust brought together four secondary schools to create a new partnership which will support the teaching and learning of around 5,000 pupils. We resolutely believe that we are stronger together and that each school within the MAT has individual strengths and we celebrate the diverse and unique qualities of each particular school. Our aim is for all schools within the Trust to become ‘Outstanding’.

The Trust ethos is one of collegiality which whole heartedly places pupils at the centre of the work we do. We are a recognised Academy Sponsor and consequently will engage with schools in difficulty giving the necessary level of support to bring about school improvement.

Inclusion is at the heart of all we do as a Trust. Our pupils show a high level of care for each other and respect each other’s diversity. We do not allow disadvantage to be a barrier to learning and we support all of our pupils to be the very best.

Minerva Learning Trust is governed by a strong Trust Board that strategically leads and oversees the full business. The Trust gives clarity of vision and effectively challenges and supports to ensure that growth continues to be founded on strong educational values and outstanding school improvement strategy.

We aim to deliver a model which is efficient yet effective and ensures that the educational experience for our pupils is supported by appropriate resources.
