Joining our trust


Joining our Trust

Moorlands Learning Trust (MLT) is a partnership organisation of like-minded community schools, who work for the benefit of each other. 

At MLT, professional trust is at the core of our work, where we respect the importance and value of individual schools having and retaining their own unique character, and recognise that schools know their local communities best. 

We take a bespoke approach to working in partnership with our schools according to their particular needs and context, where there is not a one-size fits all viewpoint. 

Having formed as a sponsor multi-academy trust (MAT) in 2019 with two contrasting community secondary schools, both of whom now have very successful improvement journeys, we have since grown our Trust with a third secondary school and our first four primary partner schools joining us in 2023-2024. 

All MLT schools share our Trust vision and aims and we are very keen to work with any additional schools who also want to become part of our Trust. (Please read our vision statement here.) 

If you're a primary, secondary or special school looking to make a wider contribution to system leadership in the North or West Yorkshire areas, or are wanting to formally extend your professional network and secure your organisation's long term future in an ever-changing educational landscape by joining a successful MAT, then we believe Moorlands Learning Trust could be the right partner for you.

Similarly, if you are a school currently in need of some support seeking a partnership MAT who can provide capacity for school improvement, including in the context of the new Ofsted framework, then Moorlands Learning Trust could be the right partner for you. Our research-driven, proven school improvement and support strategy, underpinned by our ‘Exceptional Curriculum Design Principles’ and ‘Exceptional Teaching and Learning Toolkit’, enable and empower all our schools to improve and ultimately excel.

Whatever your context or current situation, we are confident that Moorlands Learning Trust can make a positive difference to you.
