Welcome to Advance Learning Partnership



Advance Learning Partnership is a not-for-profit Multi Academy Trust consisting of a mix of primary and secondary academies. All academies within their trust collaborate as a ‘family of schools’ with one vision and shared set of values.


The Trust works to ensure that all children, irrespective of their starting point, receive an excellent education. They pride themselves in meeting the needs of children in their care, including those who are most vulnerable or challenging. They work closely with parents/carers in helping raise the children’s self-esteem, resilience and subsequent achievement.




Quality education is the right of every child. Advanced Learning Partnership schools will work collaboratively to provide outstanding learning experiences and opportunities.


We seek to prepare children for a rapidly changing world by instilling the values, motivation and confidence they will require to meet life’s challenges.

ALP’s values
