CEO's Welcome

As Chief Executive Officer I am delighted to welcome you to Wildern Multi Academy Trust.  A family of schools which serves the vibrant community of Hedge End and Botley in south Hampshire.

Our Trust believes that education is a collaborative effort between teachers, parents, and students. Together, we create a nurturing and inspiring environment where children can thrive academically, socially, and personally.

The ethos of the Trust is based on its founding principles of Care, Opportunity, and Quality.

  • Care - We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and enriching environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and personally. We believe in fostering a strong partnership between parents, teachers, and the school staff to ensure the best possible educational experience for every child.
  • Opportunity - We offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities, clubs, and sports programs to help our students explore their interests and talents beyond the classroom, to open young minds to different experiences, challenge their perceptions and develop new skills and passions.
  • Quality - Our dedicated educators are committed to providing a high-quality education that fosters a love for learning in every child. We have a rigorous and extensive curriculum that is designed to challenge and engage students at every level but more importantly for them to have a continual thirst, hunger and inquisitiveness for lifelong learning.

The key aims of the Trust are:

  • To enhance the opportunities and successes enjoyed by all present and future students and staff.  
  • To develop further the Trust’s track record of contributing to school improvement, innovation and transformation, locally and within its immediate family of schools and for the wider system as a whole. 
  • To contribute to opportunities for all our stakeholders in our immediate community particularly in arts and sport. 

Working in partnership within a strong Multi Academy Trust which shares a similar vision is an essential aspect to growth and sustainability.  It increases the opportunities and experiences for both our students and staff through mutual collaboration and sharing of best practice.

"If everyone is moving forward together then success takes care of itself"

Henry Ford  

High quality teachers and leaders make a real difference to student outcomes and that is why we are committed to creating a culture of continual professional development at all levels and ensuring that there is real balance to work load and wellbeing for all colleagues across the Trust.

As CEO I am incredibly proud to lead such an innovative, passionate and caring family of schools and welcome everyone to see for themselves what wonderful learning communities exist within our walls.
