Founded in 2012, Excalibur Academies Trust has grown from two schools in Marlborough, Wiltshire, to 14 (soon to be 15) schools in five local authorities stretching from Bristol to Reading along the M4 corridor, providing high quality education to almost 5000 children from age 2 to age 18. Excalibur’s vision is to provide an excellent education empowering individuals to thrive and grow within a caring, aspirational and outward looking culture. Excalibur believes in investing in its staff to ensure talented, dedicated people who are committed to changing children’s lives for the better are attracted to join the Trust. With a strong track record of raising the achievement of disadvantaged pupils across the trust, it is Excalibur’s mission to promote social mobility and personal fulfilment through the transformative power of education. Excalibur’s strategy is based on a hub model building the capacity to provide strong support and opportunities for all schools in the Trust.
