Life at Greenshaw Learning Trust
Our people are at the heart of what we do. We are not afraid to do things differently. There is no one route to where you want to be. We are always looking for new ways to better ourselves and we do not shy away from going against the grain and trying something new. Paving our own way is as much a part of our mindset as striving for excellence.
Greenshaw Learning Trust currently comprises of 30 schools: seven in South London, five in Berkshire, one in Surrey, 14 in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire, and three in Plymouth. We are continuing to grow and have further schools joining us on a regular basis.
