The Howard Partnership Trust (THPT) is a Multi-Academy Trust. It developed from a long-standing federation that was originally formed in 2007 at the request of the DfE and Surrey LA between Howard of Effingham, an outstanding 11-18 school and Thomas Knyvett College which had been in challenging circumstances. Both schools benefitted with improved student outcomes leading to Ofsted judging partnership working as 'Outstanding’ in 2009.
The MAT was formed in November 2013, again at the request of the DfE and LA, to enable another school to join; Kenyngton Manor Primary, a Surrey 2-form entry primary school in Sunbury-on-Thames. Currently there are nine schools in THPT, four secondaries, four primaries and one infant school but we are a growing MAT with more schools likely to join us this year.
The distinctive feature of THPT is that the schools within our MAT all retain their own unique features in order to meet the needs of the communities which they serve. However, the vision and values that underpin the schools are rooted in the same guiding principles: namely to ensure that consistently high quality teaching facilitates excellent learning within an inclusive, caring, vibrant environment.
Closing date: Sunday 20 May 2018.
