About Us

The Rowan Learning Trust was established as a Multi-Academy Trust in 2012 to maximise the potential of all children, students and adults in our schools and to support them on their journey to become outstanding.

The Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) was established following highly successful school-to-school support over a number of years and across a large number of schools in Greater Manchester and the surrounding areas. Our support is based on the belief that educational professionals should help each other to develop and further improve so that the life chances of the children and students we educate will be the best they can be.

Our logo was carefully chosen to represent the children, young people and adults in our learning community who strive for excellence through high aspiration and high expectation.

Currently the Rowan Learning Trust (RLT) family comprises four schools: two high schools, an all-through alternative provision academy and a primary school. Together, we share a set of common values:

  • Mutual respect
  • Fairness
  • Equality of opportunity
  • Individual growth
  • Kindness

The RLT has aspirations to continue to grow; not for the sake of growth, but to extend our positive influence to a wider group of young people and adults. However, we are selective in our growth plan. We wish to join with people who share our values and ethos to extend our family, share expertise and support each other on each school’s journey to become outstanding. The match has to be right and the collaborative working has to be of the highest possible quality.

If you would like to find out more about working with us or how we can help you on your journey, please have a look at what we offer to schools in the Trust and what our governance structure looks like. Don’t hesitate to contact us for an exploratory conversation about possibilities.

The RLT is also still engaged in school-to-school support and training so if you have a requirement please do not hesitate to contact us and if we can help, we will do our very best to deliver the high quality support you expect.
