Our Multi-Academy Trust























Academy conversion is a significant step for any Governing Body to take.

Schools considering conversion, including existing academies looking to benefit from partnering with us, are able to join The Rutland Learning Trust as an academy partner or sponsored academy. A partner school or sponsored academy becomes part of the legal entity of The Rutland Learning Multi Academy Trust, ceding its governance to the Trust, whilst retaining management autonomy proportionate to its current performance. 


Our website is packed with information about The Rutland Learning Trust and our schools. However to find out more about us and what we can offer your school please contact Debbie Kennard Kettle: DKKettle@rutlandlearningtrust.com
