The Victoria Academies Trust was established on 1st January 2014. We aim to build a family of outstanding schools who share our passion for powerful, immersive and creative learning. Quite simply, we want our schools to be the best they can be and to build on the successes of our outstanding lead school, Victoria Park Academy, shortlisted finalist for TES School of the Year. Having been transformed from special measures to outstanding in exactly 1000 days, our DfE-approved sponsor school brings a unique understanding of the challenges schools face in transforming the life chances of the families we serve. Our academies will have the highest expectations of our pupils ensuring they stand-out as powerful learners and future leaders. We will continue to strive to celebrate diversity and commit to excellence.
We are a unique Trust. We are entirely independent and consist solely of like-minded schools that share a passion for innovation. We are committed to enabling each individual school to flourish with a high degree of autonomy whilst at the same time providing a culture of collaboration and mutual support.

F I D E S
We are a values-driven school where teaching and learning at all levels has a strong moral purpose. Taking inspiration from the Latin word Fides (‘To Trust’) we believe in five simple core values that underpin all that we do:
Loyalty by Focusing on Family
Tenacity by Insisting on Excellence
Kindness by Doing Good as we Go
Courage by Embracing Innovation
Brilliance by Seizing Success
To explore what this looks like in practice – see our shared film project: Trust us to:

We have a proud tradition and history of training teachers, either through our past Initial Teacher Training programme (CETT), or our current partnership with the University of Birmingham. Many of the current leaders at Victoria Park are graduates of our own training. To find out more, please visit:
