East Midlands Education Trust

A partnership of willing, proud and autonomous schools

Welcome to the

East Midlands Education Trust


East Midlands Education Trust (EMET) is a partnership of schools originally formed in September 2014. The trust now consists of 22 schools with a tight geographical focus on the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.  

Our mission is to raise the educational standards and improve the life chances of all the children within our partnership.  Our schools are high performing schools representing the full age range of 3-19, along with an alternative education provider, and place great emphasis on collaborative working across the Trust within a family of schools approach.

Our schools enjoy a high degree of ‘aligned autonomy’ whilst, at the same time, being supported by a central trust team who help ensure our schools provide the highest quality of provision possible.  


News Update

Larkfields Infant School - another successful Ofsted Inspection

The trust is pleased to report the outcome of the school's recent Ofsted inspection which can be found here.  As you can see, the school continues to be a 'Good' school and the Trust is delighted with this judgement.  Many congratulations to all the staff, governors and children of the schools whose hard work made this outcome possible. Parents have a school they can be really proud of. All 22 schools in the Trust remain good or better, as judged by Ofsted!
