Our Vision

As a high-performing multi-academy trust we embrace the opportunity to ensure that all children, irrespective of their starting point, receive an excellent education. We relish the opportunity to be part of the much needed regeneration of the areas we work in.

To achieve this aim, staff within OGAT have three values in common. They:

  • put ‘students first’ – they care deeply about children;
  • strive to be experts in their respective fields; and
  • are obsessive about attaining the highest standards.

As a multi-academy trust we want to be known for placing…
