Welcome toLearning

Welcome to the Learning Academies Trust and thank you for taking a look at our website.

We are an 9 school primary Multi Academy Trust based in the heart of Plymouth. We believe passionately in the power of education to transform our children’s life chances and we have a wonderful team who strive tirelessly towards meeting this goal.

Our 500 fantastic staff currently educate just under 3000 Plymouth children in our 9 primary schools and 6 nursery settings. More details on each of our individual schools can be found via the school links on our website.

Back in late 2016, the LAT grew out of an original ’outstanding’ school, working alongside and supporting a neighbouring primary and that school to school collaborative culture continues to underpin everything we do to this day. Between 2016 and 2018 the LAT grew organically, starting with 3 schools, the Trust then moved…


We believe that every child in our Trust deserves an outstanding education, whatever their starting point or background.


We believe that every school in our Trust is unique and should serve the needs of its own local community.


We believe that the individual schools in our Trust will work most effectively when they work together.

Horizon and Learning Academies Trust

Dear Stakeholders of Horizon and Learning Academies Trust,

We are contacting you in relation to Horizon and Learning Academies Trust merging as one Multi-Academy Trust. This will lead to the nine schools in each trust coming together and working together for the benefit of the children, staff and families of the schools. Within the government white paper (2022) there was a central drive to reduce the number of small trusts by consolidating organisations to build a secure future. It is important that trusts explore the ability to increase their capacity, to become more financially secure and deliver sustainable high-quality services for the future, while keeping children at the heart of all decisions.
