Edwin Jones Trust

The Edwin Jones Trust was formed in June 2013 with Harefield Primary as the first academy joining the EJT under the Hamwic Trust umbrella.

The aim of the Trust was to create a local community of schools in Southampton who support, challenge and collaborate to improve standards, develop the curriculum, identify and improve weaknesses and track progress.

Two years on and the schools in the Trust have achieved excellent results and are all good and outstanding schools. The Head Teachers work closely together to maintain and raise standards and also with the partner Multi-academy Trust (Jefferys Education Trust) in peer reviews, joint training, CPD and group projects.

We share a commitment to making a positive difference to our children and their families through a nurturing, caring ethos and raising aspirations within our community. We bring professional expertise and experience to secure the highest possible achievement for all. All aspects of our work will have a clear focus on improvement in the skills of our pupils, staff and community on sustaining measurable impact.

"The teaching is excellent and the curriculum innovative and highly stimulating." Ofsted 2011
