The Two Counties Trust was formed in April 2016 with three founding academies, since then we have grown quickly into a medium-sized Trust serving families across the counties of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.  As a medium-sized family of schools, we are able to capitalise on economies of scale and sharing best practice, whilst still maintaining a family feel that is a key component of our Trust.  We are genuinely a values-driven organisation and fully embrace the broader impact we have on the communities that we serve.

Mission: why do we exist?

To provide our students with opportunities and experiences to enhance their life choices, making a positive contribution to the world we share.

Values: how do we behave?


We maximise our potential through striving for excellence.


We give 100% effort, displaying kindness and humility for the benefit of all.


We are respectfully open about our successes and areas for growth.

Strategic Anchors: how we will be successful going forward?

  • Create a healthy organisation, free from politics and confusion through clarity following the empowered to lead operating model.
  • Build a compelling school culture built on strong professional relationship where all can achieve.
  • Craft and implement a high-value curriculum that is knowledge-rich to allow the meaningful application of skills.
