Tandridge Learning Trust was formed in 2017 by five Tandridge schools. It is a cross-phase Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) comprising one secondary (Warlingham School & Sixth Form College), and four primary schools (Bletchingley Village Primary School, Hamsey Green Primary School, Tatsfield Primary School and Woodlea Primary School).
Tandridge Learning Trust recognises and respects the unique culture and ethos of each individual school and has high aspirations for every child and every school; sharing best practice and inter-school collaboration will improve teaching, learning and outcomes for children.
The Trust provides robust challenge combined with relevant support for each school within the Trust to ensure that every child, no matter their ability or circumstances, achieves their best possible outcomes. It also provides wider opportunities for students and staff by broadening the curriculum offer, sharing specialist staff and improving professional development. This broader curriculum and opportunities for development and movement within the Trust creates an attractive working environment and aids in staff recruitment and retention. The structure also provides more possibilities for robust succession planning and encourages the development of school leaders.
Working together as a group of similarly minded schools creates more opportunities for economies of scale, eventual efficiencies in the provision of centralised services and access to additional funding.
By operating as a cross-phase Multi-Academy Trust, the schools can improve the transition between primary and secondary phases and thus raise learning outcomes.
Tandridge Learning Trust is governed by a Trust Board which is responsible for the strategic decision-making and financial prudence of the Trust.
