Abingdon Learning Trust will be a Multi Academy Trust that has been established by local schools working together and taking charge of our own destiny.
Building on the strengths of current partnerships, we have established an exciting agreed vision, structure and approach driven by our collective strong moral purpose, local knowledge and our desire to get the very best for the students and families of our community.
This local collaboration will sustain the special ethos and feel of each school and build on our strengths to bring many additional benefits for all.
The full vision for the Abingdon Learning Trust can be found here.

Dear parents, carers, staff and partners,
In April this year we wrote to parents, carers, staff and partners to let you know that our three schools (Rush Common, Fitzharrys and John Mason) were exploring the option of establishing an Abingdon based Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). We are really excited to be able to share news of our progress.
At the start of September, Rush Common Academy Trust became the Abingdon Learning Trust (ALT) in order to support this process further. The three schools felt this captured the essence of our new phase of working together, a Trust for our town, focussed on learning. We now begin the process of consultation to include Fitzharrys and John Mason schools within the ALT MAT.
An Abingdon based MAT arrangement brings many key benefits that our governing bodies feel support our improvement aims and will secure further success for everyone. These benefits are outlined in detail in the vision document and further explored in the frequently asked questions document, both of which are available on the website.
