Join our School Trust

Are you looking to join a successful, child focussed education Trust in South Yorkshire?

At Minerva Learning Trust we are open to expanding our Trust and currently have the capacity to accept new schools into the Minerva family.

As a fully inclusive Trust, we welcome all types of school and do not restrict access because of religious affinity, age or ability. All we ask is that you believe in every child’s potential, are enthusiastic about growth and open to building collaborative relationships with the schools in our network.

Our schools remain an integral part of their community and we value each school’s individual identity. We do not exist to envelop you into a brand, instead we work collaboratively to strengthen who you are and what you stand for. We recognise and appreciate that the unique qualities of your school, workforce and stakeholders are integral to forming relationships with parents and children in your community. We respect who you are.

We celebrate and communicate our successes; share good practice and we all promote a culture of continuously learning from each other. We provide high quality central services that allow school leaders and staff to focus on providing the best possible education for children in their care.

We value Inclusion, Independence, Respect and Success. Our Mission, Vision and Values underpin everything we do. We take these words seriously and honour them with integrity. To read more about what we stand for click here.
