Multi Academy Trust -The Minerva Learning Trust

Welcome to the Minerva Learning Trust.


The Minerva Learning Trust is a group of schools in West Dorset, working in partnership “to create an outstanding, inspirational and inclusive learning community that meets the needs of all young people for their present and future global citizenship”. (Memorandum of Understanding)

All of the schools within the partnership have chosen to come together to share expertise, resources and experience for the benefit of the young people in their community.  This is not a sponsored academy Trust but one which has seen the benefits of working together and believes that they are best placed to understand and meet the needs of the children in their care. 

The schools involved - Bridport Primary School, Burton Bradstock CE School, St Mary’s CE  School and The Sir John Colfox Academy - all share the view that improving the quality of teaching and learning is best done through collaboration, sharing and joint activities.  They share a fundamental belief  that education should be exciting, nurturing, challenging and fulfilling for all those involved and seek to achieve this through joint events for students, sharing of good practice amongst staff and working closely with parents and the local community.  We are committed to providing an exceptional  education which successfully prepares students for their role in the modern world.

We hope you enjoy reading more about our Trust and our vision for education in our area.
