Vision, Values & Ethos


The vision for the Hamwic Education Trust is to create communities of schools working together in close geographical areas, where the School Leaders and Governing Bodies take a collective responsibility and are accountable for children’s wellbeing and for standards of education provision in their community.

The Hamwic Education Trust is passionate about the central role of education in improving individual life chances for children and young people. We believe in a local education, with the freedom to collectively support the needs of the community it serves. We promote a ‘self-improving community’ model, driving up standards in local geographical regions. To achieve our aims we provide quality training to all staff utilising the strengths, knowledge and expertise from within our own schools and from a range of professional partners/alliances.

The Trust enables groups of schools within communities to work together in partnership, School Leaders of the schools taking a collective responsibility and being accountable for education within their community, improving standards, developing the curriculum and identifying and tracking progress.
