About us

Creating excellence together

Brigantia Learning Trust is a successful 2-18+ Academy Trust in the north of Sheffield. It was borne out of the success of Hinde House 3-16 School that was graded as strongly good by Ofsted in 2012 and 2016.

Currently, our Trust comprises Wincobank Nursery and Infant School (2-7), Concord Junior School (7-11), Hinde House Primary School (2-11), Hinde House Secondary School (11-16), Yewlands Academy (11-16) and Longley Park Sixth Form College (16-18+). All schools/colleges are located within 5 kilometres. All, in time, feed into another trust school/college for the next educational phase.

Our core purpose is to change life chances, and secure social mobility and justice for children in our community. We will achieve this by providing an outstanding 2-18+ learning journey for local children.

  7. That a local Sheffield partnership is best placed to deliver educational excellence now and in the future.
  8. Partnership drives accountability, innovation, the sharing of best practice and better use of scarce resources.
  9. The bedrock of any school is the quality and stability of the staff team. We care about staff well-being and are committed to attracting, developing, retaining and promoting them within our Trust.
  10. We believe partnership brings capacity, expertise, support, challenge and strength.
  11. Our partnership is part of a wider whole that fits into a city-wide strategy for education, skills and employment.
  12. The words creating excellence together have been carefully chosen to reflect our commitment to continuous improvement and working together in partnership.

Hinde House Primary School was purpose built in 2006 and is located in the North East of Sheffield. It is one half of Hinde House 2-16 School which opened in 2002 as the first public sector ‘through school’ in the country.

Ofsted graded all aspects of Primary as outstanding in November 2012 and the 2-16 school was garded as 'good' in June 2016. The Primary Phase was at the centre of our conversion to become an Academy in July 2013 and form Brigantia Multi Academy Trust with other local Primary schools in March 2014.

Our ambition is to provide an outstanding education so that every child reaches their full potential and progresses successfully into adult life.

Hinde House is graded as good by Ofsted and our aim is to be outstanding at our next inspection. We are a popular 11-16 secondary phase, part of Hinde House 3-16 school, located in north east Sheffield.

Whilst each school operates separately, we share the same vision for 2 – 19 education across our community, the same strategic priorities, as well as key policies and we are governed by one board of directors. We are extremely ambitious for all schools in our MAT and work in partnership to drive school improvement and raise standards.
