The vision for the future of the group of schools within the Robert Carre Trust has been shaped through the identification of a number of key ideas and assumptions that will enable us to build a framework within which RCT will operate. The vision for the schools builds on that already established by the comparable visions of Carre’s Grammar School and Kesteven and Sleaford High School.
The Robert Carre Trust aims to provide the most enriching educational environment for all our students – academic, cultural and sporting - within an environment where staff are attracted to, and nurtured in, an organisation that supports them by providing long term professional development.
We see the development of a family of schools as an opportunity to build a joined-up strategy for the development of:
- a range of provision with full progression routes, working in active partnership with key stakeholders to link into local, regional and national strategies to develop additional capacity for school places and to engage all, from the academically able and talented to those in the NEET category (Not in Employment, Education or Training);
- core skills in English and Mathematics and transferable skills sought by employers;
- collaborative working with schools and other key stakeholders to eradicate unhelpful duplication and competition; and
- sharing good practice across the group of schools who have a common mission, vision and purpose.
