“Aspire to achieve, enjoy and excel”

The Trust

Empower Learning Academy Trust is a multi-academy trust based in Havering, and currently comprises three secondary academies and a primary school: Hall Mead School, Bower Park Academy, The Brittons Academy and Hacton Primary School. Hall Mead was judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2013 and is a Teaching School, National Support School and Leading Edge Academy (SSAT).

The Trust was established in 2016 with the goal of making the most of our collective experience and expertise to support and develop a growing family of local schools. We are determined to inspire the members of that family to provide opportunities for our pupils, staff and leaders to be the best they can be; to create a passion for lifelong learning; to enable our pupils to become confident and impactful world citizens.

We share an inspiring ethos of continual improvement, where powerful teaching, challenge, support and accountability lie at the heart of creating environments that focus relentlessly on the needs of the learning community and deliver outstanding outcomes for all pupils.

We seek to achieve the following:

  • To improve the educational outcomes for young people in Havering and Essex

  • To deepen the impact and longevity of our school to school relationships so as to build sustainable school improvement locally

  •  To fulfil the obligations of our National Support School with a National Leader of Education by consolidating our system leadership role and sharing our expertise

  • To develop models of staffing and governance which represent value for money at a time of public sector austerity

  • To provide opportunities for staff development and leadership across the multi-academy trust so as to address the challenge of recruiting and retaining highly effective teachers, leaders and support staff locally

  •  To secure all our academies an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by learning from and growing with others.
