Objectives

The school is currently working with 2 primary schools and a secondary school to establish a multi-academy trust. Lumen Education will serve primary and secondary schools in Luton and the local region and plans to grow to 10 schools over time. We are involving a group of schools with a collective consciousness to work collaboratively towards a singular goal: pupils with diverse backgrounds and abilities will develop the knowledge, skills and understanding to overcome any barriers to their success.

  • We believe in preserving the individuality and traditions of each school in the Trust.
  • Our aim is to build a learning community that will share exceptional educational achievement for all.
  • All members of the trust will make an influential contribution in the pursuit of high quality learning, for pupils and staff.
  • We are committed to excellence, attainment and life long learning.
  • We will have a strong local identity, engaging effectively with parents and the wider community.
