Aletheia Trust’s Vision

Aletheia Academies welcomes those of all faiths, and we are proud of the inclusive nature and diversity of each cohort. The Trust is motivated by Christian values to embody the experience of the local community; where all gifts are nurtured, expertise is shared and results are tailored. All with the vision to produce the best outcome for each and every individual.

Aletheia Trust’s Objectives

Aletheia is committed to sustaining high-quality schools, and supporting schools in need of specific improvement in some of the more challenging wards in Kent. Our focus is to provide school improvement services that draw on the wealth of practice from across our trust, broaden the expertise available to schools through flexible working arrangements and increase our capacity to quickly respond to the needs of individual schools. Pedagogical excellence is at the heart of all we do with a sustained focus on collaborative and mastery learning.

Belonging to a local Trust offers greater opportunities for influence than single schools can achieve: working together the Trust aims to be greater than the sum of its constituent schools. We see the growth of Aletheia as an opportunity for schools, leaders and governors to step forward as co-shapers of a school-led and self-improving system in our area. The trust offers our distinctive ethos, the strength of leadership and commitment to working collaboratively to ensure all our schools are outstanding.

Why Horton Kirby Joined Aletheia Academies Trust

Horton Kirby was previously with an educational trust, however, with staff growing resistant towards specific strategies, it came to a unanimous decision to leave the Trust in search of something that aligned more with Horton Kirby’s values and prospects. Aletheia Academies Trust was selected due to preexisting, positive working relationships with other members within the Trust.

By becoming a part of an established, local Trust with five other schools and further potential additions, it added confirmation that Horton Kirby would become involved in a wider family network which has enabled the academy to connect with like-minded individuals whose main objective is to put the education of pupils in the forefront and improve life chances for local children.
