Wickersley Partnership Trust
Wickersley Partnership Trust (WPT) exists to further the interests of the young people that it serves. We believe that education empowers and enriches. We strive to be an outstanding group of schools where studentshave a highly positive educational experience that prepares them well for the next stage of education and provides them with opportunities to develop socially, emotionally, academically and physically to achieve the highest possible standards. The climate for learning is characterised by embedded inclusivity and high expectations from the whole Trust community for the Trust learning community.
We are one school on several different sites. Students in our care are happy, enthusiastic resilient and purposeful learners. All staff are supported thoroughly in their professional development through the dissemination of best practice and collaboration, and through reflecting and debating on their practice. All students are supported to reach their full potential and those students who fall behind are helped to make rapid progress through effective action ensuring all students make at least good progress.
We are committed to ensuring that all students have the best educational experience possible. We want all the students within WPT to grow into confident, caring and well-educated adults and this will require students, parents and teachers to work together in true partnership

Rotherham and Lincolnshire-based Wickersley Partnership Trust has made the decision to move to free school
Following the recent closure of schools, we have been working hard behind the scenes to temporarily transform our Cranworth Road and The Gainsborough Academy sports halls into Covid-19 test centres.

Students of all ages from across the Trust have taken part in a fantastic festive
The Trust currently consists of 4 secondary schools and 7 primaries, predominantly within Rotherham, South Yorkshire. Our academies have over 6000 students within them and they serve a diverse community culturally, ethnically and socially. Ten percent of the school population are classed as EAL and at least 20 different languages are spoken. Some schools sit on the border between Rotherham and Sheffield with a proportion of children not coming from Trust catchment area or local authority. One school sits out of Rotherham completely and is situated in Gainsborough.
We aim to: raise achievement through a commitment to high standards and expectations; enable every child to succeed as an independent, enthusiastic and confident learner; build a strong infrastructure which underpins student progress and attainment; develop strong inspirational leadership and management at all levels including governance.
