Vision and Values

—Great learning opportunities and outcomes for all are at the heart of the Societas Vision.

Taking place in a like-minded community which also celebrates diversity where everyone is valued and encouraged to excel.

Whilst our shared vision and values underpin the ethos in each school / academy within the Societas family, each one is also valued as an individual entity with its own unique identity – where:

  • —All schools / academies working collaboratively, not competitively
  • —Each school / academy retains its own leadership ( no executive head/ lead school)
  • —Each school / academy retains its own governing body

To ensure each academy has an equal voice in the work of the Trust as a whole, a unique governance structure has been developed where each school / academy has a seat on the Directors’ Board and on the Executive.                 


All six of the schools / academies have appreciated the benefits of collaborative working over a number of years albeit not all together in the first instance. We have come to further appreciate the possibilities of formalising the partnership we currently have and of the potential future benefits that our partnership will bring for all our stakeholders.

Our shared values include (list is not exhaustive):

  • Honesty
  • Transparency
  • Trust
  • Challenge
  • Integrity
  • Accountability
  • Respect
  • Moral Leadership
  • Professional regard
  • Collaboration
  • Physical Health and Well Being for all
