CORE Education Trust

CORE Education Trust’s mission is to provide children with a high-quality educational experience realised through a collective commitment to four CORE Values:


We will promote, facilitate and support an outward facing culture in all our Schools.


We will run our Schools efficiently and effectively to develop capacity, ensure transparent governance and improve performance.


We will commit to beyond statutory safeguarding standards in our Schools and additionally ensure all our children have access to a wide range of cultural experiences.


We will be uncompromising in our aspiration to achieve the highest standards in all our endeavours and be committed to investing in programmes of excellence for all our staff to achieve this.

Each School will be supported, challenged and monitored to ensure these Values are embedded. As well as incorporating the CORE Values in the environment of the School and by adopting them into specific School initiatives, each School is required to determine and promote a bespoke set of “CORE Characteristics”. These characteristics map each Value to a staff and student/pupil entitlement agreed by the Headteacher as appropriate to the local context of the School. The characteristics will be identifiable features of the School and celebrated with visitors to the School and stakeholders.

A CORE education for the children at each of our Schools is underpinned by a curriculum philosophy at the centre of which lies an uncompromising focus on the development of character and communication.

We welcome your views and encourage you to contact us if you would like to support our work.

In its journey from home, this piece of Year 7 work might have lost a few letters, but it’s not lost its important message #CORErespect

Thank you to the parents who attended 5B's assembly today. I'm sure you all agree that the children were fabulous. What was your favourite part?

Inspired by our Alchemy Island topic, this child in 5C wanted to do more. Super homework, thank you!

We had a fantastic maths lesson in 1A today. Every child deserved this medal by the end of the lesson. #COREexcellence

At Innovaré today, students were exposed to innovative designs which relate to our Science and STEM program taught at Rockwood. The students particularly enjoyed signing the panels that will be installed in the new building! #COREcollaboration #COREopportunity
