Welcome from our CEO

Welcome to the Orchard Learning Alliance Multi-Academy Trust.

We are expanding!

Originally formed in 2015 as Waingels Academy Trust, we became the Orchard Learning Alliance in September 2022 and currently have one academy, Waingels College.  In the coming years we are looking forward to welcoming nine more academies to our community.

Our own website is under construction and you can find more information and statutory documents below.

It’s a very exciting time for us and we are proud to serve our local communities, families and children.

Our Vision and Values

Mission – why we exist

  • To promote excellence and social justice through exceptional schools.
  • We aim to provide the highest possible quality of education for all our children, to ensure that pupils from all backgrounds thrive. We believe that schools have a social responsibility to ensure that all children, regardless of any disadvantage, are given equality of opportunity to succeed and that all barriers to learning are challenged.

Values – how we will behave

  • We cherish the relationship between pupils, staff, parents, carers and governors and we will nurture these relationships for the benefit of all. ​
  • ​We will make sure that through courageous choices and meaningful collaboration, everyone at The Orchard Learning Alliance thrives.
  • People Matter. ​We value the contribution of individuals, and we will continually invest in their development. ​

Vision – our ambition

  • We want to be an alliance that serves our communities in a way that transforms the life chances for all.
