Our Values

Welcome

The Spencer Academies Trust is a multi-academy trust with schools across the East Midlands with a strategic focus on Nottingham and Derby. The results obtained in Spencer schools reflect our status as a high-performing regional Trust with a national reputation for excellence. 

 

Our academies are as diverse as the communities they serve, but we have the important things in common. We put children and young people at the heart of all we do. We strive for excellence. We have high expectations of everyone that comes through our doors, and we love nothing more than seeing them succeed.

We are always looking for motivated, collaborative people to join our team and offer a competitive suite of employee benefits to ensure that you are supported in your work with us. Our staff are encouraged to continually take on new challenges, so we offer a wide range of professional development resources and opportunities.

Our Academies

Our academies are firmly rooted at the centre of the communities that they serve. Each Spencer academy has its own context, character and curriculum.

Our academies are committed to being inclusive and equitable. We strive for excellence. We have high expectations of everyone that comes through our doors, and we love nothing more than seeing them succeed.
