The Mead Educational Trust

We are delighted to introduce you to The Mead Educational Trust (TMET).

Formed in 2014, TMET is a well-established, respected multi academy trust in Leicestershire, with a growing family of primary and secondary schools.

We exist to make a positive difference to the life chances of children and young people and to our wider community, and believe that any young person from any background deserves an equal chance to be successful in whatever they choose to do. We want to share our love of learning with these young people in order to open the doors to their futures and prepare them with the knowledge and confidence to thrive in a competitive world.


“TMET has a very strong educational and moral compass. They are absolutely child and people-centred.” Emma Merry, Principal of Kibworth Mead Academy

“I started as a learning mentor but knew I wanted to qualify as a teacher. Everyone has been brilliant. They helped me get to where I want to be.” Nitin Odedra, Music Teacher

“There are always teachers working across our schools to discuss good practice. Staff appreciate that.” Jenny Slinger, Principal of Knighton Mead Primary Academy
