About Brooke Weston Trust

Our Trust was formed more than 25 years ago with a simple and clear mission – to transform educational performance in all our communities.

Working in some of the most challenging contexts, we improve our students' achievements by making long term commitments to the community and championing new approaches to improve the life chances for young people.

Our five core values underpin this mission and guide our work:

  1. Ambition for all - we are ambitious for all our students and our staff, providing everyone with the opportunity to develop and succeed
  2. High expectations - we are committed to going the extra mile and constantly asking 'is it good enough for my child'?
  3. Excellent teaching and support - we seek to be a source of inspiration and encouragement for our students, regularly reminding ourselves that we want to have a positive impact on students' lives
  4. Working together - we are not about competition; we work as a team to share ideas, resources and best practice to ensure we are providing the very best for our students and staff
  5. Contribution to society - we champion diversity, inclusion and tolerance; we celebrate the ways in which we are making a difference in the local community; we encourage our students to become a positive influence on society by providing them with important life skills to succeed in the future

What it's like working with us

Our members of staff are essential to realising this vision. We recognise that a happy, motivated and supported team will deliver the best possible experiences for our young people and know that our staff regularly exceed the expected limits. We therefore place great emphasis on creating a supportive and collaborative working environment in all our schools where morale is high, and our people are proud to be part of the Brooke Weston Trust.

The Brooke Weston Trust Way

  • We encourage mutual respect between out students and members of staff and you will often see senior leaders sitting with and talking to students in our restaurants at lunch time. Staff who choose to do this are also able to take advantage of subsidised breakfasts and lunches. 
  • As well as subsidised food, we offer other benefits to our staff including access to car and bike schemes, childcare nursery vouchers and discounted gym memberships. 
  • Our schools offer modern and stimulating buildings which enable technology to seamlessly integrate into our classrooms with minimal fuss. 
  • We are huge advocators of collaboration and development - all members of staff can share best practice through our colleague networks, as well as being able to access a range of first-class professional development opportunities through our Brooke Weston Teaching School Alliance. 
  • Being able to offer professional development to our staff is important to us. We have recently launched a new initiative, the Brooke Weston Trust Leadership Academy for teachers wishing to progress into leadership positions. This is an exciting new initiative designed to nurture talent and develop future leaders within the Trust through a programme of mentoring and professional development tailored to the needs of our Trust.  

Our Family of Schools

In our 25 years we have grown into a family of 10 primary and secondary schools throughout the East Midlands united by our mission and values. More than 7,000 students between the ages of 3-18 are now educated in a Brooke Weston Trust school, supported by more than 1000 passionate members of staff. 

Our schools include:

  • Beanfield Primary Academy            Gretton Primary School
  • Brooke Weston Academy                Kettering Science Academy        
  • Compass Primary Academy             Oakley Vale Primary School
  • Corby Business Academy                 Peckover Primary School  
  • Corby Technical School                   Thomas Clarkson Academy

Alongside our broad and balanced curriculum, our young people are given experiences that are unusual to the state school environment. We run the Brooke Weston Trust Combined Cadet Force, which brings together students from across our five secondary schools, and we have also created the Sports Ambassadors programme which is encouraging more of our students to become involved in sport. Our young people are also part of a wider family as our schools have regular inter-Trust gatherings and competitions.

We have come to where we are today through a history of high standards and innovation which dates back to the early days of our first school, Brooke Weston Academy (formerly known as Brooke City Technology College).

Our founding school is currently the best performing secondary school in North Northamptonshire. Regularly topping the GCSE league tables it has a 25 year proven track record and has educated tens of thousands of students who have gone on to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives and make a difference to the world.

The Brooke Weston Academy’s original objective of providing high quality educational experiences which result in outstanding achievement and personal development is at the heart of the Trust’s work today and has laid the foundations for where we are now.

In 2008 under the guidance of Sir Peter Simpson, we opened the Corby Business Academy, turning around a previously failing school which is now rated ‘good’ and on the road to outstanding.

The following year the Kettering Science Academy, became part of our family of schools, and we oversaw a £30m rebuild which has made the school one of the best equipped and impressive in the area.

In 2012 we opened a free Corby Technical School, which is rated as outstanding and is being used as a model for other free schools. In the same year we also became a sponsor for our first school in Cambridgeshire, Thomas Clarkson Academy and added Gretton Primary School and Beanfield Primary School, to our family. In 2013 Peckover Primary School and Oakley Vale Primary became part of our Trus
