Teacher training

Endeavour Learning Trust is a small but steadily growing Trust in the North West, currently spanning South Ribble, West Lancashire and North Sefton. In our family of schools at this point in our growth, we have three secondary schools and two primary schools, a Teaching School Alliance and a SCITT.

In the past two years we have taken over the leadership of two of our secondary schools, both in challenging circumstances, and the impact has been rapid and significant. We are keen to welcome other schools into our Trust and to ensure we have the capacity to continue to intervene where we are needed most.

Our Trust has been further strengthened by the addition of a large primary school, which enables us to embrace the all through nature of education. It provides us with rich opportunities to learn from and with each other.

Our family ethos is tangible; we work as a team; we want the best for everyone. But we are also staunch in our commitment to doing this in a way which protects the wellbeing of our staff and our students; our commitment to reducing workload is non-negotiable. Our behaviour policies enable teachers to teach and students to learn and we strive to ensure that our schools are communities of joy, learning and teamwork. We seek to thrive; individually, together, in our classrooms, staffrooms, schools and across the Trust
