About Us

Home » About Us

Here at South Downs Learning Trust, we are a family of local schools and not just a ‘Multi Academy Trust’. 

Every school in the trust is committed to providing the highest standard of education so that all learners are supported to be the best that they can be. 

SDLT is a small trust with big ambitions for our local young people and learning community. We are clear of our moral purpose; to ensure that every child in our trust gets the very best education to ensure the widest of life opportunities. We do this by building on the individual strengths of our schools, taking the best of each, and applying these standards to other schools in the trust. 

A collaborative approach benefits us all. By drawing on our collective wealth of experience and knowledge we ensure high standards of teaching across all schools, with our learners at the centre of all we do. 

South Downs Learning Trust is an inclusive trust, welcoming and embedding all cultures in a supportive environment across our family of schools. 

We are proud of our inclusive nature and diversity of each cohort. Motivated by a shared vision and the trust’s mission, we endeavour to serve our community by improving the opportunities of local children through education, nurture and shared experience.
