A network of schools in Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire that tirelessly collaborates to increase educational outcomes and life chances for students of all backgrounds and abilities.
We are very proud to have five secondary and five primary schools in our family, each with their own individual identity and who share the same aims.
These are: Ambition for All, High Expectations, Excellent Teaching and Support, Working Together and Contributing to Society. These values inform all aspects of our work, both in individual classrooms and schools, but also corporately at strategic and operational level.
Our 7,000+ students are at the heart of everything we do and they enjoy Trust-wide activities including trips, curriculum days and competitions that encourage them to interact and learn from their peers from different schools.
We promote a culture of professional collaboration and support for our 1,000+ staff that allows them to network and share resources and best practice for the benefit and development of all. Being part of a multi-academy Trust enables our staff to access a range of training, educational settings and specialisms.
The Trust's operation is underpinned by a dedicated Central Team that offers services including finance, IT, procurement, estates management and welfare, so that all our schools benefit from the same consistent and professional advice.
Brooke Weston Academy (est 1991) at Great Oakley was our founding school and the successful ideas and principles pioneered there formed our foundation and inspiration.
The Brooke Weston Trust was established in 2007 and is led by CEO Dr Andrew Campbell.
Brooke Weston Academy was founded in 1991 with the support of Hugh de Capell Brooke and Garry Weston, and the school owes a great deal to their foresight and generosity.
Hugh de Capell Brooke was a local land owner who donated the site and substantial cash underwriting to ensure the building of Brooke Weston Academy began.
He and his family committed more land to complete the environmental developments around the site, including the Newman Library. A strong supporter of Brooke Weston, Hugh de Capell Brooke died in 2014, but his family continues to take a very active interest in the achievements of all our students.
Garry Weston was chairman of Associated British Foods. He died in February 2002 and is remembered for his unfailing support for Brooke Weston, of which he was always very proud.
His generosity extended beyond the initial sponsorship; he supported the initial construction of the astro-turf, the humanities and ICT block and the Newman Library. The Weston family continues to be strong supporters of all that we do.
