East Midlands Education Trust

A partnership of willing, proud and autonomous schools

Welcome to the

East Midlands Education Trust


Orginally formed in September 2014, our trust has become a very successful and high-achieving multi-academy trust.  Our partner schools are located within the neighbouring localities of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottingham City & Derby City, and we continue to grow as more schools approach us to join our organisation.

Our mission is to raise the educational standards and improve the life chances for all the pupils within our partner schools. Our dedicated and highly trained teams undertake excellent work to ensure the highest levels of achievement are secured. 

We represent the full age range of 3-19, along with an alternative education provider, and place great emphasis on collaborative working across the Trust. Our schools enjoy a good degree of earned autonomy whilst at the same time ensuring the highest quality of provision that is equitable across the Trust. 

We are also committed to developing high quality teachers through our excellent teacher training provision (East Midlands Teacher Training Partnership) who, in turn, ensure the best possible opportunities and progress for the pupils they teach.
