Who we are


GEMS Learning Trust is an educational charity with Academy Sponsorship status, approved by the Department for Education and established to deliver high-performing free schools and academies. Our people are education experts with 15 years or more of experience in their chosen specialism. We provide support for new schools and academies, delivering high-quality education and improving outcomes in sponsored academies.


In September 2015, we opened our first school in Twickenham, our second here in Didcot in September 2016, and in the future we will be opening a further school in Kingston -upon-Thames in the near future. We have also been approved to open a new school in Wantage, set to open its doors in September 2020. More details to follow soon. You can read more about GEMS Learning Trust here.


Working together is a strength which delivers an excellent academic and enriching education in GLT schools.


GEMS Learning Trust schools collaborate at every level to ensure the best quality education possible for all pupils in every school.  Staff expertise, resources, workshops and a friendly, supportive and honest relationships exist between the schools.  School leaders benefit from professional support and challenge from the Director of Education, as well as from the other principals in the trust.


At the heart of our curriculum is the wish for pupils to fully engage, enjoy and understand their learning experiences; working with the teacher and their classmates to stretch their abilities whilst developing resilience and perseverance by responding to constructive feedback from their teachers and peers.  The Trust schools expect this level of commitment from all staff leading to a highly reflective and effective workforce ensuring that all pupils have stimulating and successful teaching and learning experiences.
