The Mead Educational Trust (TMET) was formed in 2014 out of the moral imperative for an outstanding secondary school in Leicester to support a struggling primary feeder school. Today that primary school is one of the top performing in the country and TMET is an established, well-respected multi academy trust, with a growing family of 13 primary and secondary schools in Leicestershire.
TMET exists to make a positive difference to the life chances of children and young people and to our wider community.
At the heart of all we do is a commitment to provide our pupils access to a world-class education, our schools with excellent school-to-school support, and our staff with high quality professional development.
We value cross phase work and have deliberately recruited a mix of primary and secondary schools into the Trust. All our schools have common values and core operational systems, applied locally with adaptations for individual contexts and needs.
The Mead Institute of Professional Learning is the training hub for all our staff, and offers teacher training, professional qualifications (NPQs) and other CPD for teachers and support staff. It encompasses the Leicester and Leicestershire SCITT and the Leicester and Leicestershire Teaching School Hub.
At the helm of our Trust is a group of carefully chosen trustees, leaders of education and key leaders within both the wider and business community. These conscientiously selected guardians of our Trust, supported by our core central team and effective business management systems, ensure that we keep exceptional education provision at our core.
Our trustees, staff and pupils all work together to make a positive difference
