Vision, Values and Culture

About The Trust

The Trust was created in 2015 by governors and senior leaders of New College Pontefract, an outstanding sixth-form college. Since then, the Trust has grown to include three sixth form colleges, three secondary schools and three primary schools.

Our Vision

Our colleges and schools will make a significant difference to the lives of young people.

As a result, together we will make a positive contribution to social mobility.

To achieve this vision, our commitment is

To provide an outstanding, consistent student experience through collaboration.

Our Culture and Values

Our vision can only be achieved through collaboration. Our shared belief is that raising outcomes, narrowing gaps and improving social mobility will be accomplished through proactive collaboration across all teams in the Trust, and between the Trust and its key stakeholders. This approach has already helped us establish a track-record of outstanding results and it underpins our Trust’s culture and ethos. It is best summed up in the following quotation:

If you want to walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk together.

The Trust’s culture is further exemplified by its five core values, which characterise the way we seek to work.
