Welcome to Lionheart Academies Trust

Our Trust is currently made up of a family of eleven schools based in and around Leicestershire. Each one of our schools is unique in that it reflects the students and local community in which they are a part.

This is something we are very proud of within the Trust. The schools share best practice and ensure our students have an exceptional educational journey whilst at the same time having their own character.

Ultimately, we believe that any young person from any background deserves an equal chance to be successful in whatever they choose to do. We want to share our love of learning with these young people in order to open the doors to their futures and prepare them with the knowledge and confidence to thrive in a competitive world. We hope you enjoy exploring our site and are able to gain a flavour of our trust. Please click here to view our prospectus.

Our Mission

Our educational mission is simple:  ANY young person from ANY background deserves an EQUAL chance to be successful in whatever they choose to do. The trust is committed to supporting young people to open doors to their futures and to feel confident that they can thrive in a competitive world.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is clear. We promote a student-centred approach that is underpinned by the understanding that the highest quality education is a right that all young people deserve regardless of their starting points. 

We are dedicated to providing young people with the strongest foundations; educational qualifications that they can feel proud about because their education has taught them how to feel proud.

We know that promoting a positive, proactive approach that celebrates success unites school communities and breaks down barriers to learning. 

Students under our care will be taught how to learn in this way. We will encourage students at every level of ability to aspire to develop personally and academically and we will use the ‘4Rs’ as cornerstones of outstanding learning.

The ‘4Rs’ encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning, help them to grow in confidence and prepare them for life outside of education. They are:

Resilience The ability to bounce back when the going gets tough.
Reciprocity Learning to work together and show care and understanding for each other.
Resourcefulness Having the confidence to ask for help and to find answers in new ways.
Reflectiveness Considering what needs to be done to make the next steps.
Our Pledge

Our pledge is a promise to the communities that we serve that we will work with them with limitless enthusiasm and optimism providing a platform for each young person’s light to shine brightly.

To fulfil our pledge we will use the five Ps. They are:

  • Pupil Centred
    Schools are run for pupils and everything we do is for our pupils.
  • Positivity
    We all embrace challenges and look for opportunities.
  • Passionate
    We value nothing more than equity and quality learning for all pupils.
  • Professional
    We model professionalism at all times.
  • Practice
    Teachers and other staff will be highly qualified. Subject teachers will be passionate specialists; quality first teaching is at our core.
