Brigshaw Trust
Our mission is to provide a cradle to career education that allows our children to enjoy lives of choice and opportunity.

A message from our CEO

We believe there is something very special about The Brigshaw Learning Partnership; it is a great environment to learn, work and grow in. We serve a close-knit community in East Leeds and are committed to improving outcomes for our families, children and young people.

For over a decade, our schools have collaborated to ensure all children have access to high standards of education, guidance and support. In 2016, our schools cemented this collaboration further through the formation of The Brigshaw Learning Partnership (BLP), a Multi-Academy Trust.

This context gives us a unique opportunity to shape a child’s journey from infancy all the way through to university or a high quality alternative. This is a huge opportunity, and a responsibility we take very seriously. Our seven schools share a common commitment to improving  outcomes and raising aspirations for all students in the communities we serve.

Our mission is to provide a cradle to career education that allows our children to enjoy lives of choice and opportunity. By the age of 18, we want every child to have the option of university or a great career. This means that we aim for life changing personal and academic  outcomes, with no child left behind.
