Welcome to Discovery Multi-Academy Trust.

Our successful Trust was formed in 2016 and is the result of the amalgamation of three primary schools from across the Plymouth area; including Oakwood Primary Academy, Beechwood Primary Academy and Weston Mill Community Primary Academy. We are also fortunate enough to be able to provide an alternative nurture provision, for primary aged children from schools across the city – The Edison Centre.

At Discovery MAT our key aim is to ensure that every child is able to thrive and achieve their full potential, through quality learning experiences. We also ensure that our children are safe, secure and happy during their time with us and endeavour to fully prepare them for their secondary school education and beyond.

The Trust is committed to promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) education, as part of our vision to be one of the South West’s most vibrant collaborative educational establishments. We want to enable every child to learn in a rich, challenging, imaginative and inclusive environment, and STEM helps to make this a reality.

Our commitment to achieving these goals for our children begins with the dedication and hard work of our school staff, Local Advisory Board (LAB) and Board of Trustees.  Whether you are a support assistant, a new member of the administration team, a class teacher or a senior leader you have an equally important part to play in the success of our MAT.  Along with hard work comes a huge amount of fun and massive rewards from working with a fantastic team of staff and children.

We are here to nurture, educate and inspire our young people and are fully committed in supporting and developing every member of staff to be the best that they can be.

We embrace the individuality of each of our academies, their pupils, staff and communities, but work collaboratively as a Trust to ensure the best possible learning opportunities for all of our pupils.  This is reinforced by our shared leadership, experience and support network.
