L.E.A.D. Academy

The Glapton Academy is a part of the greater L.E.A.D. Academy Trust. Below you can find specific information regarding this.

The acronym L.E.A.D. embodies the four core principles at the heart of the Trust: strong leadership at every level; empowering every child to aim high; giving every child the opportunity to achieve and constantly driving for improvement.


Having been on an extraordinary learning journey of our own, we know the importance of both autonomy and collaboration.

This is why our model allows member schools the autonomy to lead and manage in a way that preserves their individual identity and responds to specific community needs, while unifying them through:

  • shared vision and values,
  • partnership working in key areas such as leadership, professional development and sharing best ideas and practice
  • improved succession and career planning
  • a relentless focus on an exceptional quality of teaching and learning

A strong focus on leadership permeates our model, not just at Trust level or of our clusters of schools, or of the individual schools but for staff and for children. Everyone can benefit from the development of leadership skills.

Our focus on leadership also extends to succession planning, talent management and enhanced career options for leaders across our schools. Growing our own leaders and deploying them across the Trust as opportunities arise will embed our values, facilitate the sharing of best practice and promote sustainability.
