We have a genuine sharing of expertise, experience and ideas which promote continuous learning, excellent career opportunities and high quality professional development.

We believe that each school community is unique and special in its own way, and therefore we empower leaders to successfully implement a strategic plan that reflects the needs of the whole community, with a wealth of resource and expertise around them, balancing our ‘Golden Threads’ for alignment with the autonomy to innovateWe shape our future together and are invested in broadening horizons for all members of our community and forming exciting partnerships that promote early intervention and inclusion across and beyond our Trust.

We are currently comprised of five special schools, three of which are in Portsmouth, one in Compton, West Sussex and one in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Founded by Mary Rose Academy which now celebrates its fourth outstanding Ofsted rating, our Trust has over 17 years experience in transforming lives of our children and families through high quality specialist education for pupils aged 2 - 19. 

We pride ourselves on harnessing the benefits of being a multi academy trust, working closely together to accelerate school improvement and share innovative practice in order to improve outcomes for all pupils and develop a strong learning community.
