Becoming a CLF Academy

Home » Our Academies » Becoming a CLF Academy

With the support of the Regional Schools Commissioner and the Department for Education, the Cabot Learning Federation is well placed to grow.

We are looking for schools to join us who have a likeminded vision for the future of the children and young people in their care. We are especially interested in hearing from schools who are supporting children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Our Trust is a true partnership, and we will learn and benefit from you as much as we will provide support, guidance and expertise to your school.

If you are a maintained school, a single academy trust or another multi academy trust, we are ready to embark on the next stage of our Trust’s development – we hope you will join us on our journey.

Our Cabot Learning Federation collective mission has always been to consistently deliver excellent educational experiences for our pupils, aged 3-19, improving their life chances and serving the communities of which we are a member.

We believe that by working together rather than in isolation we can accelerate school improvement and embed excellence in our academies. Together, we can create more opportunities for the lifelong success of our students as they become young adults.
