Welcome from the CEO

Every member of the Venturers Trust community shares a determination to ensure that each young person, through the transformative value of education, will be inspired to achieve their hopes for the future. We have a moral responsibility to provide our students with a high-quality education that not only encourages curiosity, but equips them with the confidence, ambition and skills to pursue their goals and contribute positively to society.

Education really can change lives for the better and it is essential that we nurture the potential of every student, regardless of their background or starting point. Against the guiding principle ‘work hard, be kind’, I believe that anything is possible.

You will see from our mission, vision and values that people are at the heart of Venturers Trust. Our pupils and their families, as well as teachers, teaching assistants, staff, principals, governors and central support staff all have unique qualities, abilities, talents and potential and we see no limits to what our Trust community can achieve. 

By providing genuine opportunities to develop expertise, share best practice, form partnerships both within and beyond the Trust, and provide the right level of support and challenge to our Academy Leadership Teams, together we can close the gap too often caused by disadvantage and improve the life chances of all young people.
