The Salterns Academy Trust exists to serve the community of Portsmouth. We run two successful and fast-growing secondary schools in the city, providing the opportunities for over 2000 young people to be the very best that they can be.
We are proud to be student-centred, inclusive, celebratory and very aspirational because we know that our students and their families deserve the best and we know too that excellent education changes lives.
We are a caring and supportive employer of over 260 staff of whom we have the same high expectations. We work in partnership with GLF (a Multi-Academy Trust) on school improvement and staff training.
Constantly striving to improve, we are very happy to work collaboratively with any organisation both within Portsmouth and beyond who can help us to meet our vision for our students. This includes the Portsmouth Council, the University of Portsmouth, Portsmouth Education Partnership and the Royal Navy as well as other schools, colleges and multi–academy trusts.
CEO of the Salterns Academy Trust
The school is ambitious for all our students. We are committed to providing the very highest quality education as well as a caring and emotionally supportive environment.
Our students talk enthusiastically about our values of respect, community, resilience, aspiration and inclusion. They understand how these contribute to the school's caring atmosphere.
Pupils enjoy school. They are proud of the school and they model the values of respect and responsibility well. Pupils feel well supported and safe.
Pupils focus well in lessons because teachers insist on high standards. Levels of challenge are strong and pupils have high aspirations for their own development.
The Salterns Academy Trust is a Rights Respecting Organisation and both schools have received awards - Admiral Lord Nelson School achieved Gold and Trafalgar School achieved Silver.
Both schools are also judged as Good schools by Ofsted.
