Strength through diversity
In our Trust, we celebrate the rich and diverse communities that make up our academies. Sharing, listening to and respecting each other’s views and beliefs make out Trust stronger. We support each other, honouring our different backgrounds, to create a safe and equal environment for all.
Ambition through challenge
We are fiercely ambitious for all our students and challenge them to do their best, every lesson, every day. We check their achievement and progress against the highest national standards. This ensure that we are always looking for ways to improve, and that we insist, relentlessly on the highest standards of teaching and learning. Everyone in the Trust is continually challenged to improve on their previous best.
Excellence through curiosity
Curiosity is the engine of intellectual achievement. In our Trust, we encourage and provoke pupils’ and students’ curiosity so that they are inspired to seek out new knowledge, learn new skills and achieve excellence. Curiosity is closely linked to empathy, helping us all to develop better relationships. The life of a curious person is never boring!

Welcome from our CEO

I am proud to have held the role of Chief Executive Officer of the Summit Learning Trust since May 2017, and proud of all we have achieved since then.

Summit Learning Trust includes four primary and three secondary schools and The 6th Form College, Solihull. We now provide an education for around 8000 children and young people; some of our children are with us from age 5 to age 18.

We are blessed with a richly diverse community across our Trust, and we celebrate the wealth of opportunities this brings for learning about a range of different cultures, heritages, backgrounds and experiences. We are entirely committed to challenging all discrimination and to actively promoting equality, diversity and social justice across our Trust at all levels. We have Anti-Discrimination and Diversity steering groups in all our academies and centrally, and we review opportunities offered, challenge given and standards achieved by all groups of pupils and staff. 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.

Our Trust name from 2019 signals our relentless ambition, reflected by the clear metaphor of climbing to reach the highest peaks of educational and personal excellence for all. We aim for the summit: we want all our learners to have a superb educational experience that would match any in the country.
