Our Mission, Vision and Values

Our Mission

Our mission is our reason for being – it is simply:

to make our people the best they can be.

Our Vision

Our vision is the picture we paint, the future we want to create, based on our mission.

We are a family of schools, united in our passion for inspiring pupils to achieve more than they imagine possible.

We have a positive influence on children’s lives in areas where we can make the most difference.

We are ambitious for our children.  Our high expectations of them, the memorable experiences and opportunities they have in our schools, along with the kindness and compassion which is at the centre of our Trust, means that they will be successful in whatever they choose for their future.

We are at the heart of our communities; a place where local people can turn to for help, support and guidance, working with us for the greater good of our shared community.

We are aspirational for our people, who are given opportunities to grow, develop and become experts in their chosen fields.

Our people feel valued and supported; they show ambition, courage, and resilience, but most of all are kind and respectful.

Our Values

Our values are important to us and guide our behaviours, our relationships and the way we work together.  They define how we want to be.

These values of Unity, Integrity, Courage, Curiosity and Excellence, along with our commitment to strong ethical leadership ensure that we build a positive and powerful legacy to be proud of.


We know that by working together, we are stronger than working alone. We work together as a family, united in our shared responsibility to achieve our mission.


We show integrity by being honest, truthful, and transparent; always doing what we believe is right and true. We show kindness and respect by treating others with dignity, empathy, and understanding.


We show courage by being ambitious, challenging ourselves and others to achieve more. We take on challenges with enthusiasm, determination, and resilience, learning from failures.


We show curiosity by having a passion to learn, explore, and discover new things and new ways of working. We are innovative and ambitious, always seeking to be even better.


We have a strong commitment to continuous improvement, a willingness to learn, and a dedication to becoming the best that we can be.

For our children, our values are exemplified as follows:


We know that by working together, we are stronger than working alone.


We always do what we believe is right and true. We show kindness and respect to others.


We are willing to take on challenges with enthusiasm, determination, and resilience.


We have a passion to learn, explore, and discover new things.


We learn from our mistakes, always working to become the best that we can be.

Victoria Academies Trust

A Part of Victoria Academies Trust

Victoria Academies Trust officially launched on 1st January 2014 although its evolution began several years beforehand. The lead sponsor school had had a turbulent history, transforming itself from being one of the worst schools in the country to one of the best. In April 2012, the school became the first converter academy in the local authority. Therefore it was only a matter of time before it became a multi academy trust. Poppyfield joined the Trust in 2018.
