Anthem Schools Trust

Anthem Schools Trust

Abacus Belsize Primary School is proud to be part of Anthem, a multi-academy trust of 11 primary and five secondary schools in the East Midlands, London and the Thames Valley. From Lincolnshire down through Oxfordshire, Berkshire and London, together we create ambitious and successful schools where every child thrives. We are supported by Education Development Trust, an international education company that transforms lives by improving education around the world.

Our mission

Our mission is to ensure that every child and young person becomes a confident learner, understanding the contribution they can make as global citizens and living lives that make a positive difference.

At Anthem we inspire, challenge and support our leaders and teachers to make every lesson count. We work collaboratively, sharing ‘what works’ in our teaching and learning practice and together making our schools the very best they can be.

Our values

Our vision and approach are built on three values, which we share with our sponsor Education Development Trust. These are:

Excellence in learning outcomes, with an acknowledgement that this comes in many forms.

Integrity in the way we build trust and bring purpose to our work as an education charity.

Collaboration in the way we take collective responsibility for each other and for the way we work together to achieve our overarching vision.
