Palladian Academy Trust
Combe Down Church of England Primary School is a member of the Palladian Academy Trust (PAT), a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) formed in 2016.
Palladian Academy Trust is based in Bath and Wiltshire. We are a community of schools*, each with its own particular ethos, enjoying a mutually enriching partnership. Our core purpose is to make a fundamental difference to our pupils, families and colleagues through high quality education and development opportunities.
Palladian Academy Trust includes both church and community academies working closely together, all connected by the vision we share for our students. We value and respect the individuality of every child and believe their learning and development should be personal and holistic. We aim to support their wellbeing and help them achieve their best. We are proud to have a great team of people working in our schools and centrally to enable this to happen.
Underpinning our vision for education are our values: respect, trust, courage, curiosity. We are a values-driven organisation, committed to our vision to provide excellent and equitable opportunities for all; in our classrooms and beyond!
The Trust Board holds Trust leaders, schools, senior leaders and local governing bodies to account across the Trust and provides strong support.
All our schools are passionate about providing enriching and valuable opportunities for our pupils and staff through a shared commitment to strive for excellence and equip our pupils for the necessary life skills they need for the next stage of their journey.
We are a lively Trust who thrive and develop from collaboration, support and challenge from within the Trust and more widely. We value the partnerships we have locally and nationally to ensure we are a group of great schools working together to make a difference to every member of the Palladian Academy Trust family.
