Mercia Learning Trust is a multi-academy trust of six schools in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. We are a family of three secondary schools and three primary schools situated in the south of Sheffield.

In 2012, the trust was founded by King Ecgbert School. Within 3 years, the trust had formed partnerships with Totley Primary, Nether Edge Primary, Woodlands Primary (formerly named Valley Park Primary) and Newfield School. In 2018, the trust opened Mercia School, a new 'free school' on Carter Knowle Road, Sheffield. The school opened with a founding group of Year 7s, and grows by one year group each year.

The Sheffield MAT is lead by a central leadership team and three tiers of governance (local governors, trustees and members).


Mercia Learning Trust is one of the most ambitious, effective and innovative trusts in the country. Working in one of our schools is a great place to develop your career; and an opportunity to work alongside outstanding colleagues and highly motivated children. We only recruit the very best people, and expect total commitment to our moral purpose, mission and staff principles.
