Cedars Learning Trust

CEO Welcome

Welcome to Cedars Learning Trust.

We are a fledgling and ambitious Trust with a new and fresh approach.

We have exciting plans for the future and are clear in our goal to create a network of like-minded professionals and partners who are committed to developing and enhancing the life chances of young people.  We believe in integrity, autonomy and enabling future partners to retain their unique identity; all equally making a contribution to the Trust going forward. The Trust has been founded on the experience and growth of Lea Valley Academy.

At Cedars Learning Trust, our purpose is to transform the life opportunities
of our young people

Our Trust has many strengths built on the firm foundation of the talents, skills and abilities of our people. We have a strong and shared moral purpose that underpins our work; a clear operating model for partnership that focuses on school improvement, data analysis, inclusion and safeguarding of young people; and a rich CPD programme focusing on the development and growth of all our staff, particularly middle and senior leaders.

At Cedars Learning Trust, our purpose is to transform the life opportunities of our young people; creating aspirational learning environments that will provide inspiring futures for all. Our culture is based on a belief that resilience, courage and determination lead to success. Our mission is to build creative collaborative partnerships that enable our young people and staff to flourish.

I invite you to be part of our future success.
