About the Trust

The Learning Together Trust was established in April 2015. It was originally set up to formalise the existing partnership between St. Wilfrid’s Church of England Primary Academy and Canon Sharples CE Primary School and Nursery. Currently in the Trust, Canon Sharples is sponsored by St. Wilfrid’s. The Trust works very closely with both schools to provide a range of services, support and collaborative working for all children.

The Trust is keen to grow its family of academies enabling it to achieve a greater level of system led improvements, further opportunities for collaboration between leaders and staff at all levels of the school and better economies of scale which are significant in the current financial climate.

The Learning Together Trust provides an opportunity for schools to convert to academy status whilst retaining their own identity. Wherever a school is on its journey, we will recognise its strengths and work closely with the school to achieve continuous development. Children are at the heart of all we do and we recognise that each child is unique.
