I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the main website for Lydiate Learning Trust. Lydiate Learning Trust is a growing, successful multi academy trust based in the North West.

We have designed our website to be as informative as possible and we do hope you find what you are looking for and all the details that you require. If not, please do not hesitate to contact us using the contact details below.

Lydiate Learning Trust was borne out of true collaboration and the sharing of best practice. It was only natural that the work of our senior leaders and teachers that had already been established for many years across schools should be allowed to formally develop and bring schools together, united as a Multi Academy Trust.

This allowed us to continue the good work in school improvement, but also allowed us to capitalise on shared resources and the benefits of economies of scale.

Hopefully, you will see some of theses benefits as you go deeper into our website.

We have gone on to build on our belief that team work is precious, but we recognise that originality and initiative are also very important. We encourage positive attitudes and a “ can-do “ culture right across the Trust community.

LLT currently operates in Sefton and Liverpool, but we look to grow and develop beyond this boundary over the next few years. We will not rush into things or sacrifice quality during this phase as we aim to work with other schools who share the same ethos. We believe all schools have something to contribute to school improvement and we know we all have lots to learn too so please do not hesitate to contact us to get involved either formally or informally.

All of our schools and academies are part of their local community and retain their own identity. We believe this is very important as each school and associated community are unique. However, we still have high expectations and ask all of our communities to strive for the highest possible standards. Our communities are proud of their LLT school and we are the school of choice and we aim to keep it that way.

LLT works with key partners and have established a first class reputation for teacher training, delivered through our own training centre. We also deliver high quality training including all of the National Professional qualifications for teachers and leaders. However, we also continue to be outward facing ensuring our teachers at every level remain fully up to date with the best teaching methods.

Our aim is to ensure that all of our schools and the training centre are at least “good”, but we work hard daily as we drive towards “outstanding”
