South Downs Learning Trust

South Downs Learning Trust is a multi-academy trust formed by Ratton School and Ocklynge Junior School.

 

Ratton School joined with Ocklynge Junior School on the 1st of December 2017 to form the South Downs Learning Trust. The aim of our trust is to provide an outstanding educational experience for all students in both schools.

Our schools have been working closely together for some time and our students have already benefitted from this collaboration and local partnership. We believe that there are a significant range of benefits for our schools including:

  • Extending learning opportunities and activities for students. 
  • Enriching the curriculum through partnership and shared resources.
  • Enabling the sharing of excellent practice in teaching and learning.
  • Enhancing the professional development of teaching and support staff.
  • Securing cost and resource efficiencies through joint commissioning of services.

We want both schools to retain their own unique identity and work closely together to support the learning of everyone in the Trust community. This, in turn, will help develop a sustainable and exciting educational experience that places our students at the centre of what we do.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to learn more.
