Welcome to Northern Education Trust



Northern Education Trust was established in 2012 and sponsors 22 academies- 12 secondary and 10 primary- throughout the North East and North West of England. They strive to help young people overcome any barriers to learning.




We constantly focus on standards as we understand outcomes are paramount. Our decision making is driven entirely by what is best for children. By doing this we enhance the life chances of the children and young people in our care.




Our approach to education recognises that outcomes are paramount and also allows children to gain experiences and values which prepare them fully for life in modern Britain. This includes workplace skills and appropriate advice for future progression.
