Company Description

The David Ross Education Trust is a network of unique and diverse academies, committed to becoming one of the top-performing multi-academy trusts in the country. Recognised as one of 11 System Leaders for education across England, the Trust works with 34 primary and secondary schools across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and London. Our schools range from smaller primaries with around 50 children, to much larger secondary schools in the centre of urban areas. The Trust also has a grammar school and special school within the network.

Our mission is to give every child attending one of our schools a world-class education. We achieve this through the Trust’s unique culture, where delivering academic excellence and embracing the value of enrichment and citizenship are at the heart of who we are, and what we do as an organisation.
