Core Education Trust

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.

Year 11’s commitment to achieving #excellence is evident again today. They have arrived in large numbers to take part in Science revision. I’m sure their commitment will be rewarded with great results in the summer.

Today has been brilliant raising money for @BBCCiN. Here are just a few pictures. We will share the total raised with you on Monday. #respect to all staff and students who worked hard to raise money today.

We’re very proud of the @COREJQAcademy students currently signing Christmas Carols on stage at @JQBID’S Christmas Light Switch On. #collaboration #opportunity #respect #excellence

Our ⁦@COREJQAcademy⁩ choir are starting the festivities this evening ⁦@MyJQ⁩ ‘s Big Switch #Christmas #excellence

And so the karaoke in aid of @BBCCiN has started. Massive #respect to those taking part as it takes such courage to climb up onto the stage and perform in front of staff and students!

A non-Children In Need related tweet! In Music, Y8 are creating Grime beats using new software that Ms Wilkins has introduced. Their tracks show real #excellence.

There’s no stopping the fund-raisers at @CORERockwood today. At lunchtime, we’ve had a Y10 V Y11 football match, a guessing the number of sweets competition and a special games club, all raising money for @BBCCiN. #respect

#collaboration at it's finest. Nansen Explorers dressed to impress in their pyjamas and odd socks today. Here's 5 Water and the Fire House assembly. We are still counting the money raised, but so far it is over £610.

The tastiest breaktime on record! Staff and students took the #opportunity to buy delicious cakes and samosas for @BBCCiN. I can honestly say that they were delicious. Ms Bibi’s cakes are always a treat!

Can’t wait for this later today! @CORERockwood students (and maybe one or two staff) will be sharing their vocal talents for @BBCCiN. #respect to all who have volunteered to sing.

Our Year 11 student leaders are working on setting up a wellbeing section on our school website. Each have been assigned topics they will research to help other students #ComingSoon #Collaboration

It is Children in Need day and Nansen children have thought carefully about what it means to be a Child in Need #collaboration #respect
