David Ross Education Trust

Broadening Horizons

Welcome from the David Ross Education Trust

The David Ross Education Trust is a network of unique and diverse academies. 

We are collectively working to become the country's leading group of academies, committed to ensuring each and every one of our students has the support and opportunities to succeed.

Underpinning this mission are the three objectives that shape the decisions and ambitions of the Trust and our academies. These are:

Academic Excellence

Our drive to ensure that every child has access to an outstanding education that has academic excellence at its heart



Strong Community

Our desire to build a strong and sustainable network of academies that responds to the needs of the communities we support



Outstanding Opportunities

Our ambition to deliver outstanding enrichment opportunities to all our students


The David Ross Education Trust was established by the David Ross Foundation, a charity established by David Ross. To find out more about their work, please click here
