A place to Thrive

Vision & Values 


St Martin’s Multi Academy Trust is dedicated to creating a thriving environment where every child can flourish. Our vision revolves around a just cause, one that inspires and drives us to improve the life chances of our children while fostering school communities that thrive. At the heart of our mission are the foundations of respect, trust, and compassion.

Our Vision: A Just Cause

A just cause is not merely a destination but a future state that we aim to bring into existence. We firmly believe that a place to thrive is a positive and specific vision of the future, which is open and inclusive to anyone willing to contribute. Our vision is service-oriented, driven by the unwavering belief that the true beneficiaries of our efforts are our children. Their growth, happiness, and success are at the core of everything we do.

“It is the Just Cause that we strive to advance that gives our work and our lives meaning.”

Enduring Resilience

As we embark on this journey, we understand the importance of enduring resilience. Our vision must remain steadfast and adaptable, able to withstand the winds of change, be they technological, political, or cultural. We are committed to nurturing an environment where children are equipped with the skills, mindset, and determination to thrive, regardless of the challenges that lie ahead.

An Idealistic Pursuit

Our vision is not bound by the confines of the achievable or the ordinary. Instead, it stands tall as an idealistic pursuit—one that is big, bold, and infinite in its possibilities. We recognise that our vision goes beyond reaching finite goals or arbitrary targets. It embodies the essence of limitless potential and boundless growth for our children and our school communities.

Inspiring Purpose

At St Martin’s Multi Academy Trust, our vision encapsulates our “why”—the reason we exist and the purpose that drives us. It ignites passion and dedication among our staff and communities, compelling them to wholeheartedly embrace our cause. We firmly believe that when our people are united by a common purpose, they become beacons of service, embodying resilience, and embracing the ideals that define our journey.

A Foundation for Excellence

Our just cause forms the very foundation of everything we do. It permeates our teaching practices, informs our decision-making, and shapes the culture within our schools. We believe that by nurturing a place to thrive, we are nurturing the leaders, innovators, and changemakers of tomorrow.

At St Martin’s Multi Academy Trust, we strive to create not just schools, but a place to thrive.
