Welcome From The Trust Leader

Welcome to UST

I am proud to introduce you to UST, a group of incredible schools providing an excellent education that is derived from exceptional teaching and learning.

We were founded on the premise of transformation through partnership

We began as a unique partnership of six world-leading universities and other sector-leading bodies, supporting our shared vision of inclusive, high-quality and transformational education delivered by schools which are deeply rooted in the communities they serve.

Collaboration has always been at the heart of providing transformational experiences. Whether it’s our incredible partners, school to school partnership groups, staff CPD opportunities or working alongside our dedicated parents, we learn from one another to improve the life chances of every child in our care.

We believe in innovation and improvement

The UST School of Education, our innovative centre of excellence supports the development of our curriculum, teaching and learning principles and wider school improvement. Our university links enable us to co-commission and participate in research to stretch our knowledge of what works and why, and our culture of open collaborative partnership encourages staff to share and learn with other education professionals.

As our trust grows, so does our determination

By working as a family, we can offer more to everyone. As a growing trust we are always seeking to improve, drawing on the resources and expertise that everyone brings to the organisation.  

We pride ourselves on being inclusive, welcoming anyone and any school who wishes to join UST. Whether you are a parent looking to understand what organisation your child’s school is a part of, a teacher seeking to further their career or a school’s leaders seeking to find out more about working in partnership, then I hope this insight into UST is enough to encourage to get in touch and find out more.  

Kind regards,

Gillian Kemp
