Horncastle Education Trust

Our Vision

We believe that every student, whatever their background, has the right to flourish, to achieve, and to succeed; everything undertaken by Horncastle Education Trust should have this ambition at its heart.

Our aim is to create an inclusive and supportive learning environment to enable all learners to fulfil their potential.

The underlying principle of our trust is that all schools are in equal partnership irrespective of their size, phase of education, length of membership or Ofsted category. Governance is best delivered as close as possible to the point of impact so that as many decisions as possible are made at a local level to fully meet the needs of students and their local communities with the support and strength of the trust behind them.
