Red Kite Training

About Red Kite Learning Trust

The Red Kite Learning Trust builds on existing strong partnerships between schools and is a response to profound changes in the school system that reinforce the need for schools in a locality to work together for the benefit of all. Experience, both nationally and

internationally, tells us that partnerships now need to be deeper and more sustainable and have a clear focus on improving the quality of provision for our young people from age three to nineteen.

We hope you will take the time to read the information we have provided for you and it is useful either to just help understand what we are doing or even perhaps inspire you to consider putting your school forward to join the Red Kite Learning Trust. If you do, our one request would be that you really consider whether you can commit to our values. If you want to work in partnership to create world-class provision for all our young people where ‘excellence for all’ is a reality, please get in touch.
