The Schelwood Trust

The link to the Schelwood Trust website is below. We have designed this site to give you both a flavour of our Trust and access to important Trust documents.

The Schelwood Trust was formed on a collaborative basis by bringing together Beechwood School and Herschel Grammar School.

Whilst the schools themselves are very different, in that one is a comprehensive secondary school and the other a selective grammar, they each have contributed to the Trust in their own way.  The Headteachers of each school work effectively together. As well as shared central services, there is joint training, and subject collaboration. 

The Trust has a dedicated and professional staff and we value the work that they do in nurturing our students through their young lives.

The Trust has an ambition to grow to 5/6 schools based around school improvement and the quality of education that is on offer.

I am privileged to lead a Board of Trustees which is strong, diverse and comes from a variety of backgrounds.  We are all committed to the success of the Trust and the education that is on offer at each school so that our students become the best they can be and are prepared for their next stage, whether it be further education or employment.
