About Us

At LEO Academy Trust, we are proud to serve over 3800 pupils from across Sutton and Surrey. Our Trust was formed in 2015. Since then, we have developed a self-improving network of great learning communities formed from seven primary schools, supported by both our Inclusion & Wellbeing Hub and our Opportunity Hub. We are proud to provide endless opportunities for our pupils, staff and the local communities we are part of. With over 500 staff, our schools are empowered to support each other to improve both outcomes for our pupils, and to drive performance across the wider school system. We are delighted that our schools remain long standing members of the Challenge Partners Network of Excellence. Our commitment to Professional Development is ongoing; staff, governors and Trustees access training through our LEO CDP website, Judicium’s online learning portal and a wide ranging programme of courses delivered in our LEO Training Room and online via GoogleMeet. Learning, Excellence and Opportunity are at the heart of our Trust, embedded through our shared mission, values and aims.
