A Trust that Benefits your Students

When you join The Character Education Trust your students become part of a wider family of schools. We know the importance of good character and we have the experience, the passion and the resources to help you ensure that your school provides and education that builds character. Collaboration and leadership development across the Trust means that all young people can benefit from the best professional pedagogy and practice, and opportunities both in and out of the classroom

Supporting positive mental health in schools

Schools are taking an ever increasing role in supporting students with their mental health and well being. In our Trust we employ two clinical trained psychotherapists and have a wealth of experience in supporting students. We also have a school dog working in two of our schools and can share our experience of making this work.

Improved outcomes through effective collaboration

Trusts must only exist if they add value to the students and staff in those schools. We believe that effective collaboration and professional development can make a real and significant difference to all schools involved. That has been our experience to date.

Excellent careers guidance support

Our careers guidance officer has built a huge network which your school can take advantage of, as well as his experience in providing high quality careers guidance across all year groups. His work has been strongly praised in two Ofsted inspections.


Access to high quality sports
and performance spaces

We recognise that many primary schools don’t have larger scale sports and performance spaces. We know that some schools would really value the opportunity to use them.
