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.
