Welcome toLearning

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

We are an 18 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 900+ fantastic staff currently educate just under 5500 Plymouth children in our 18 primary schools and 12 nursery settings. More details on each of our individual schools can be found via the school links on our website.

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


We are delighted to be able to inform you that we have just received confirmation that the nine Horizon MAT schools have officially joined the Learning Academies Trust.  A huge welcome to Elburton, Ford, Hooe, Hyde Park Infants, Hyde Park Juniors, Plaistow Hill, Pomphlett, Victoria Road and Widewell schools.

It has taken us a while to get to this stage, but this is really fantastic news for our staff, our children and the communities we serve within the City of Plymouth.

Thank you for all of your help and support in getting us to this point.

‘Believe you can. Together we will.’

The Round Up 10.11.23

Welcome to this week's Round Up
