Mission and Values

Mission and Values

Our Trust is defined by its commitment to find the right solutions for the schools we sponsor. The right solutions are inspired by the local context and are carefully constructed through dialogue, consultation and collaboration.

We are bold and ambitious in our aspiration to lead pioneering educational sponsorship, inspired by an outward facing ethos and an emphasis on personalisation. In adversity we seek innovation, in learning we discover truth and in leading we find humility.

CORE Education Trust’s mission is to provide children with a high quality educational experience realised through a collective commitment to its 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.

CORE Education Trust Schools are expected to embed the four CORE Values in everything they do. The Trust expects these values to support an emphasis on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of children and allow for a celebration of diversity and a promotion of modern British values. The CORE Education Trust Schools should be centres of excellence in education and enterprise, provide vibrant community resources and be the focal point to enhance the social infrastructure of the local areas and communities they serve.

Each CORE Education Trust School is expected to set out how it promotes the CORE Values in its specific local context. This provides an opportunity for each School to define its own Mission Statement.
