Watergrove Trust is an academy trust that offers school support services that are designed around the continuous improvement of an educational environment, allowing school leaders the freedom to focus on improving the teaching and learning of their students.
Our academy partners receive the resources and expertise that ensure the ongoing progress of the school business, thus enabling teachers to dedicate their time to raising the standard of the quality of teaching within the academy.
The Watergrove Trust provides services to both partner and non - partner schools, sharing its staff and allowing headteachers to concentrate on the quality of teaching and learning within their schools rather than the tedious, time consuming issues of problems such as building repairs and finance, and staff management problems.
Together schools have more buying power, together they have the opportunity to share each other’s facilities, together they have the opportunity to share staffing, expertise and offer training.

Our vision is to provide dynamic and innovative learning communities within Greater Manchester and Yorkshire that are committed to achievement and empower their students to be the best they can be.
Successful schools can take many shapes and face different challenges, but at their centre are motivated students, knowledgeable and skilled with a propensity to want to learn more. Our aim is to equip those learns with the tools that will enable them to make the right choices; to motivate them to want to keep learning for a lifetime and give them the capability to lead and support others to do the same.
