About the Trust

Welcome to The West Grantham Academies Trust.

The West Grantham Academies Trust was established in February 2011. It comprises two academies:

and has a distinct Christian ethos and belief system which underpins all its work.

The academies share facilities and work together to ensure that all pupils benefit from the fantastic facilities, activities and provision.  The leadership teams work closely with the Board of Directors, sharing a relentless insistence on the best of everything for the pupils, families and community we serve.
