Why choose our Trust?

The Legacy Learning Trust (TLLT) is a multi-academy trust (MAT) currently with two schools in its trust and based in the North East in Middlesbrough. TLLT is founded on firmly held beliefs that education and learning are about high expectation, high aspirations and opportunity regardless of background, where learners should be supported to achieve their very best in the classroom and are encouraged to develop as well rounded individuals who are well prepared for life in modern Britain.

The co-founders of The Legacy Learning Trust are the schools of Acklam Grange School and Linthorpe Community Primary School. As two highly successful schools, who individually and in collaboration, have improved outcomes for children, demonstrated financial efficiencies and provided exceptional professional development of staff, we wanted to secure this partnership and protect our schools going forward. Rather than joining an existing trust and potentially lose some of our unique character, we wanted to be the leaders creating our own multi academy trust (MAT), so that we can lead the way, keep our characteristics and build upon the huge success that we have had to date.

We are keen to work together for the benefit of all our learners.

Our schools keep their own name, badge and identity, reflecting their unique communities, but support the vision and values of TLLT.

Our Trust offers:

Bespoke and standardised School Improvement support package for all schools.

A range of centralised services and functions enabling Leadership Teams to focus on their core roles.

Opportunities beyond each individual school which will support recruitment and retention of the very best professionals amongst the trust.

A chance for schools joining to be part of the shaping of The Trust via a potential place on the board of Trustees.
