Thinking Schools Academy Trust

Transforming Life Chances

Our academy is proud to be a part of the Thinking Schools Academy trust, a family of schools all united to “improve the life chances” of all our children and young people. We share a common mission to nurture all children to be successful, confident and can think and act independently. Our cognitive approach to education defines us but does not create a “one size fits all” or an “academy-way of doing”.

Each member of the Thinking Schools family is equally as important and shares a direction and ethos. We believe that we are simply stronger together.

You can find out more about our trust on the Thinking Schools Academy Trust website.

Key Points for Our Trust

  • Child first: To provide a stimulating learning environment for all where learners feel safe to explore knowledge and understanding. We believe that children learn best when they are motivated, clear about expectations in their work and behaviour, feel valued, secure and confident, are challenged and receive constructive feedback about their performance.
  • Aspire: To be the best they can be. We believe that all staff and pupils can aspire for personal and professional prowess and become empowered through the Thinking philosophy.
  • Challenge: To actively shape the minds, attitudes and habits of young people through a framework of cognitive education that enables them to become the master of their own destiny. We believe that pupils require an accurate reflection of what they are good at and need to develop personal insight and manage uncertainty confidently. Developing skilled, independent, reflective learners is part of our Vision.
  • Achieve: For all stakeholders to demonstrate the highest levels of thinking and habits. We want our pupils to be questioning in nature, achieving the highest levels of independent and interdependent prowess.

Thinking Approach

Our “Thinking School” approach is consistent with the aims below and helps to ensure that:

  • Pupils in TSAT are supported to think for themselves, through the development of a thorough understanding of purposeful thinking tools that they can use to aid and monitor their own progress.
  • Staff in TSAT are encouraged to think accurately and reflectively about their practice and understand a range of thinking tools that can be used to support student motivation and progress.
