Browse Who We Are


Here at the Trust we have appointed Members, Directors and Senior staff who bring great expertise, professional knowledge and a deep commitment to enhancing the success levels for everyone in the Trust. As we have expanded we have looked for schools committed to inclusion for all pupils, high quality professional development for all staff and a belief that by working together we can deliver a higher quality of education.

The Trust Board aims to support and create strong member schools led by strong leaders under the guidance of strong and skilled Local Governing Bodies. Our role as a Trust Board is to hold each Local Governing Body accountable for the performance of their school and support the CEO and Senior Trust staff as they help to raise standards across all the trust schools. We are totally committed to achieving the highest possible standards in all our schools, ensuring everyone in our Trust is valued and supported and continuing to make a significant contribution to education across Sheffield and in all our school communities.

Pupils first, an unrelenting focus on the progress of all pupils plus a commitment to shared working is at the heart of all we do at the Minerva Learning Trust.
