About Us

Community First Academy Trust was formed in 2013 at the request of Wigan Local Authorly.

Our charitable trust has one single legal and moral purpose: to advance education in the public interest 

We want to provide every child with the outstanding education they deserve.                                                                       

And we believe we can do this best by working together, sharing resources and encouraging excellence as standard.

Based in Wigan, we already have a track record for producing outstanding results. It is our intention to build on this success by becoming a family of high-performing academies with a shared vision and all working towards the same goal.

Together schools have greater freedom to develop truly innovative learning techniques that help us to raise achievement.

We however, believe every school is unique. They have a personal history, serve distinct community and are full of shining individuals. We embrace the unique nature of our individual schools and encourage them to use this to develop innovative practice that we can all share.

By becoming a member of Community First Academy Trust you will have access to exceptional facilities and resources that will help you develop outstanding learning environments whist maintaining your own school identify.
