The partnership’s school improvement success means that its academies are becoming more popular. As a result, the Department for Education and local authorities have confidence in investing in the partnership to provide more school places, to have even greater impact on children and young people.

ATLP’s schools are committed to empowering learners and communities. The trust is leading edge in developing excellent employer relationships that contributes to further economic development in its hub areas.

CEO Richard Gill said:

It’s an honour to be shortlisted for this award, in the company of other businesses and organisations that make a significant contribution to our regions. I’d like to thank our learning communities and the Chambers for their support and belief in our vision to make all schools better and to transform the lives of those around us. An effective education changes lives. Every child gets one chance and we never underestimate our responsibility to provide the very best. We believe the development of our business in what are stormy educational waters, our record for leadership, our outstanding provision, the excellent talented workforce across our family of schools, the outcomes we achieve and our record of school improvement within and beyond our own family of schools has established us as a centre of excellence in our sector.”
