Pioneer Learning Trust

Pursuing Excellence and Equity

A Welcome Message from our CEO

Welcome to the Pioneer Learning Trust

We are proud of our Trust and all that we have to offer to our pupils and the wider educational community.

In the Pioneer Learning Trust we have a common vision – to pursue excellence and equity in a values-based context. To us, this is a commitment to ensuring that all children have the opportunity to excel, and do so in an inclusive, values-based ethos where diversity is celebrated. We are much more than a group of schools, we are a committed family of dedicated professionals collaborating to inspire our pupils with an exceptional learning experience.

Serving diverse communities with high levels of disadvantage, our 300+ staff are focused on redressing the inequity experienced by many of our 1600+ pupils, ensuring that all pupils maximise their potential. Standards in our schools are high and improving, and pupil progress is often in the top 20% of all schools nationally. We have specialist expertise in utilising Pupil Premium to achieve maximum impact. 

Our ambitious Trust is ready to grow and we welcome the opportunity to talk to school leaders, governors and Trustees about what Pioneer can offer to individual schools or to other Trusts. Pioneer has an outstanding track record of School Improvement deployments across Herts, Beds and Bucks. Pioneer is a CPD delivery partner of Chiltern Teaching School Hub, Best Practice Network and Enigma Maths Hub. We have built a strong capacity to work with ambitious schools who want the best provision for their pupils and opportunities for their teams.

With the support of our growing central team of experts, we are able to offer potential joining schools an extensive range of School Improvement resources and CPD as well as school support services in safeguarding, finance, recruitment, human resources, catering management, premises compliance and IT.

If you want to know more about what our Trust can offer, come and talk to us.
