Who we are

The Hawksmoor Learning Trust

Who we are

The Hawksmoor Learning Trust Multi Academy Trust (THLT) was founded from a single academy, Nicholas Hawksmoor Primary School.  Nicholas Hawksmoor is recognised as one of the country’s finest primary schools, earning a strong reputation nationally for sustained academic success, excellence in the arts and a wide variety of sporting achievements. It is a forward thinking school, inspired by the opportunity to take the lead in its own destiny and maximise benefits from the new academy freedoms.  As such, its quality of education and capacity were recognised by the Department for Education who approved Sponsor School status, enabling the school to establish a Multi-Academy Trust with a view to establishing excellent educational provision across more schools.   Our Trust is based in South Northants and currently includes Bracken Leas Primary School and The Radstone Primary School, a brand new primary school which opened in September 2018.

What we are about

The Hawksmoor Learning Trust is inspired by the privilege, moral responsibility and challenge of preparing our children for real life ahead of them in an unpredictable, ever changing world. We know that great schools make a difference: we strive for academic, artistic and athletic excellence in our schools but also recognise that the best education is as much about developing young people’s character strengths and virtues. We have the highest aspirations for every individual as they learn and grow with us.  We value respect and consideration for others, equal opportunities, hard work and fair discipline.  We seek to develop skilful, curious and independent learners; foster individual resilience, confidence, and a strong sense of identity underpinned by integrity and responsibility, so that they are prepared to contribute positively to the communities and world that they belong to.

The three principles of The Hawksmoor Learning Trust are:

  1. Quality
  2. Enthusiasm
  3. Partnership

These principles will guide The Hawksmoor Learning Trust in providing an education of the highest quality. These principles demand that we think and act in highly constructive ways towards each other as colleagues, towards the children who are placed in our care and towards the parents in our schools and communities.

We strive for our individual and collective best to achieve excellence for all. We promote a ‘can do’ attitude towards continuous improvements and innovation and a culture of strong collaboration and teamwork so that we are always much greater than the sum of our parts.  We have high ambitions that The Hawksmoor Learning Trust is recognised as a centre of excellent educational practice and a source of motivation and pride for our Trust community.
