A message from the Chief Executive Vision 2025
The academic year 2018-19 has been one of the most remarkable in the history of the Trust. We have overcome barriers, crossed frontiers and continued to innovate. Importantly, we have entered our second decade and are determined to make the next ten years even more successful than the first. Since 2008 we have become one of the largest, strongest and most ambitious multi-academy trusts in the UK, but our desire to get even better and make a positive difference never stops.
We are now ready to think on an even bigger scale and look outwards to new horizons. We are educating thousands of young people who will be the adults of tomorrow, helping to shape our world for the better. That is a huge responsibility and is why our next set of goals – called Vision 2025 – will have at its centre the major social, economic and technological challenges facing the world today. Based on our strong moral foundations, it is our duty to educate pupils to face these challenges and to help make the world a better place. Vision 2025 will be shared with our community soon and will draw heavily upon the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate and Learner Profile. Its focus can be summarised in the table on the right.
These major challenges facing our world today will be the starting point for the next phase of our work. We accept our responsibility to shape the world for the better by developing a generation of young people determined and able to make a positive difference. All of our futures depend on it and our aspirations are sky-high. As Steve Jobs said, “People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do”.
