About Us » Impact Multi Academy Trust
Hayes School joined with Ravens Wood School on 1st April 2017 to form the Impact Multi Academy Trust.
It is rare to see two high performing schools come together in the interests of providing better and more sustainable education and care for all of the children in their schools and community, but we believe this is what the Impact Multi Academy Trust is. Both schools are high performing and popular schools serving the same community. They are also driven by a commitment to improving their schools even further so as to deliver the very best education, care and life chances for all children.
We believe together the schools will be able to move faster and further towards delivering this mission. We are driven by educational and moral purpose as well as enlightened self interest. We want Hayes and Ravens Wood Schools to retain their identity and compete, but also to collaborate to provide an outstanding educational experience that impacts on the life chances of all students. This is reflected in our Trust vision, mission and values.
We know we are operating in a challenging educational climate and that austerity is beginning to have its impact on our capacity to deliver the quality of education and care we are committed to. However, together we will be better able to deliver and achieve more for all our students.
We want to establish a community Trust and not only have staff and students working together but parents and carers and other members of the community. Along with the Board of Directors, I am charged with ensuring the Trust delivers on these goals.
There is an African proverb “If you want to travel fast travel alone. If you want to travel far travel together.” Together in collaboration we will build on the strengths of both schools, address those areas that could and should be improved further, and travel both fast and far in the interests of all our students.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, suggestions or offers of help!
