Welcome from our CEO

“I feel privileged to have held the role of Chief Executive Officer of the Summit Learning Trust since May 2017.

“Currently Summit Learning Trust includes four primary and three secondary schools and Solihull Sixth Form College. We now provide an education for over 8000 children and young people; some of our children are with us from age 5 to age 18.

We have a clear duty to provide the best education possible for this significant group of learners in the great city of Birmingham.

We are blessed with a richly diverse community across the Trust, and celebrate the wealth of opportunities this brings for learning about a range of different cultures, heritages, backgrounds and experiences. We are entirely committed to the promotion of equality across Summit LT at all levels, in terms of opportunities offered, challenge given and standards achieved. During my tenure, the proportion of women leaders and leaders of colour has already increased significantly, providing more strong and diverse role models for our students.

The Trust name changed at the beginning of 2019 to signal a new and ambitious direction with the clear metaphor of climbing to reach the highest peaks of educational excellence for all. We aim for the summit: we want our pupils to have a superb educational experience that would match any in the country.

For schools, being part of our Summit LT family means that they benefit from a wide range of expertise, support and challenge from a dedicated Executive team. Through our developing people strategy, including family friendly policies and flexible working opportunities, we aim to support all our staff.

Colleagues work with each other across schools to share excellent practice and offer support if needed. Our ambitious leaders and well-trained, dedicated teachers and staff are all committed to providing the best education possible for pupils.

We are committed to providing vibrant learning communities in our schools, where everyone is happy and safe. We want all our students to have as many choices in life as possible, when they leave us. To support this, we focus on providing a rich, exciting and broad curriculum that builds knowledge, cultural capital and develops essential skills and resilience.  Students are entitled to make excellent progress and achieve great examination outcomes too – and we strive to ensure that this happens in all our schools and college.

To find out more information about individual schools, please visit their websites.”
