Truro and Penwith Academy Trust
Truro and Penwith Academy Trust (TPAT) is a supportive and collaborative organisation with one primary focus: the improvement of teaching and learning at all stages across Cornwall. The Academy Trust works with local schools to ensure that young people in Cornwall have access to the best possible learning experiences.
Truro and Penwith College has been recognised as one of the best tertiary colleges in the country for education and training. Truro and Penwith College has a great deal of experience in supporting improvement through partnership, and involvement in the Truro and Penwith Academy Trust, as a sponsor to improving schools, is a recognition of the commitment to sustainable change in educational standards across the area.
The Academy Trust also works with Cornwall Teaching School, which provide bespoke support to local schools and career progression opportunities for those working in the educational sector.
Cornwall is a unique region of the country, and the Academy Trust aims to nurture the individuality of the schools within the Trust, identifying the areas of strength and distinctive features of the local community in order to promote sustainable improvement.
