Trust Information

In April 2014, Whitefield Schools and Centre and its partner school, Joseph Clarke School, joined together to become Whitefield Academy Trust.

This guides the schools’ practice and underpins all that we do.
The Trust works to create outstanding learning communities in which:

  • Children and young people feel safe, secure and valued
  • Children and young people are able to be themselves and feel accepted for who they are
  • Children and young people achieve their full potential
