Learning together, making the difference

Learn about our commitment to make the difference

Welcome to Focus-Trust

Welcome to the website of The Focus-Trust, a charitable multi-academy trust established in 2012. We are based in the North West of England and are dedicated to working with primary schools. It is the core purpose of the Focus-Trust to continually strive to be a learning organisation, where the learning of all children and adults is valued and promoted. We have a thriving partnership of converter and sponsored academies who are driven to do the best for their children. The information on this site will give you an indication of our values and approach and illustrate examples of how we make our commitment a reality: ‘Learning together, making the difference’.
