Learn-AT is founded on one core purpose - learning - and one core value - fellowship. This school-led trust is committed to working together in the service of local children and families.
Stef Edwards, headteacher at Great Bowden Academy and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Learn-AT, said: ‘If we want flourishing, engaged children who love and value learning, we need flourishing, engaged adults …Learn-AT will prioritise professional learning because we put such an emphasis on pupil learning…we will do this important work on learning with generosity of spirit, in collaboration, in fellowship with one another. We will do it together.’
