Our Schools


Mercia Learning Trust is a successful partnership of 3 primary and 3 secondary schools located in the south-west of Sheffield.  We are proud that our trust is one of the strongest in the country.

We share the same moral purpose. Working as individual schools, and in partnership, our singular intention is to ensure every pupil, whatever their background, will attend an exceptional school.  We believe pupils should enjoy school, feel safe and fully supported, be inspired to learn, develop character and aspiration, and realise their full potential.  We are so committed to pupil success and well-being that we choose to think of every pupil as if they are our own, and to measure our actions and impact against this.
