As a Trust, we ensure that all children experience education excellence every day so that they can achieve the very best outcomes – academically and in their personal development. We believe every member of staff should also benefit from this vision which is why we provide an extensive programme of development opportunities for everyone.

We think our trust is unique. We want all of our schools to be distinctive and we also think carefully, collaboratively and clearly about what defines us as a trust.
In other words, our schools should be the centre of – and focussed on – the community they serve. They should also be better for being part of our trust; our children should have a better school experience because they attend an SBMAT school.
As a teacher, your passion and creativity will inspire and shape future generations. Teaching gives you the chance to shape a role that suits your skills, situation and ambition.
We work with established partners to provide a number of options to both encourage and support Initial Teacher Training and our family of Trust schools ensures a robust and supportive peer network for our Early Career Teachers.
I found studying for my NPQLTD to be an enriching experience and would recommend it to anyone. I was able to complete the online study units at times that were convenient to me and valued the opportunities to be able to connect and work with other staff in both primary and secondary schools all working towards achieving the same final outcome.
The NPQSL course has given me time to focus on quality, personal development beyond the classroom and day-to-day teaching. It has been fantastic to have the opportunity to learn many aspects of the role as a senior leader, allow me to work with a range of colleagues and settings and understand up to date research and information in a variety of topics.
The NPQLTD course content and participation in the group sessions has, simply, made me a more skilled and effective middle leader and provided me with a range of tools that I can draw upon to help me to continue to develop my practice and, hopefully, enhance my ability to progress further in my career going forward.
As well as providing me with a range of opportunities to continue to develop in the role as a phase leader, the NPQSL course has also equipped me with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to become a senior leader. It has been a manageable, informative, and engaging course that has been achievable alongside my current role.
