Owlcotes Multi-Academy Trust


Message from Lesley West, CEO


Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in our Trust.


I am delighted to be the CEO of the Owlcotes Multi-Academy Trust and I'm proud of our achievements since our establishment in March 2018. 


We are a group of primary schools in Leeds, with a genuine desire to provide excellent education and great outcomes for all pupils.


Professional development is really important to us, and all staff, whatever their role, are encouraged and supported to develop their professional expertise. There is an emphasis on developing collaborative learning communities and networks across our Trust, to continue to develop and share good practice within our philosophy of 'Working Together to Achieve Excellence'. We have a track record of promotion and progression of staff within Owlcotes, which means that we can attract and keep great staff working within our schools.


We value all qualities in the children we teach and the communities we serve. Schools in our Academy Trust are all different. We firmly believe in schools having their own individuality underpinned by common principles. This preservation of unique identity enables our schools to focus on the key priorities of teaching and learning that are specific to their own schools and which will most improve educational outcomes for their pupils in their communities.


Our Members and Trustees are highly committed to the success of the Trust. They have a range of skills and expertise and provide focused support and challenge with the needs of the pupils at the centre of their decision making.


I am incredibly proud of Owlcotes Trust and our commitment to creating safe, welcoming, and inclusive environments for learning and development of all the children, families and staff within our Trust. 


We hope you find everything you need on our website and if you would like any more information then please do not hesitate to contact us.
