Our Vision

The vision of the Reach Academy Trust to run schools that support young people to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to live lives of choice and opportunity. The Trust currently runs Reach Academy Feltham, an all-through school that opened in 2012 and has 900 pupils aged two to 18. The Trust will open a second all-through school in Feltham in the coming years.

The Trust also seeks to have a wider impact on the education system. It works closely with schools in Hounslow through the Hounslow Education Partnership, of which Executive Headteacher Ed Vainker is a Director. In addition it is working closely with the Ted Wragg Trust to support All Saints Church of England Academy in Plymouth. In December 2018 the Trust was successful with a bid to the DfE Curriculum Fund Pilot and is currently working with twelve schools in London, Derby and the South West to trial the use of curriculum materials for Key Stage 2 History and Geography and Key Stage 3 Geography.

The Trust is open to new schools joining the Trust and is also actively seeking opportunities to develop partnerships with existing MATs, for more information visit this page.

Some of our key features include:

Backwards Design and High Expectations

An intentional rich, rigorous curriculum

We strive hard to ensure that our curriculum is knowledge-rich, intentional and focused on setting our pupils up for the next stage of their journey.

A constant focus on learning and development

We are proud of our commitment to teacher development and run a highly effective coaching programme that supports every teacher in the school to be constantly improving.

Progressive universalism

We pursue the principle of progressive universalism – providing a high quality universal service which is available for all, with additional targeted support for those who require it. The school’s support and inclusion interventions have mitigated challenges that students experience, whilst its high academic standards have raised the bar for all students.
