As a result of this vision for the future:-

  • We believe that we have a collective responsibility for all the students and families in the Trust.
  • We believe that we are stronger together and can achieve more through partnership to maximise opportunities for students and families.
  • We have a duty to strive to continually raise standards of achievement for students, families and the community.
  • We will aim to encourage collaboration and creativity to enable wider regeneration in the area.
  • We pledge to work with our schools, students, parents, staff, governors and partners to achieve outstanding outcomes for all.
  • We will review and evaluate what we do, learn and grow from our experience and share the results of our work with others.



The aim of the Education Futures Trust is to improve the life-chances of children, families and those living in Hastings, St Leonards, Rye and the surrounding area, particularly through education by:

  • building resilience
