Welcome from the CEO

Welcome to the GEMS Learning Trust, a not-for-profit charity operating in London and the South of England.

We are a small but strong academy trust with a clear vision for our schools. Both our newly opened schools have achieved ‘Outstanding’ judgements from Ofsted and their reports really do capture the essence of why the GEMS Learning Trust was formed. We are proud of what we do for our children, our families and our communities, we invest now so that the future looks very bright indeed.

We opened our first primary academy in Twickenham in September 2015. Our second primary academy opened in Didcot in September 2016 . We have been approved to open a third school in Wantage Oxfordshire for September 2020 and a fouth school in Surbiton, Kingston upon Thames in September 2022.

The GEMS Learning Trust has been established to offer all children in our academies a first-class education. We have high expectations of everyone in our school community and we challenge all our children to succeed while supporting them every step of the way.  We believe that early mastery of the core basics is essential and teach phonics, reading, writing and mathematics on a daily basis.

We believe in teaching children to be creative, independent problem-solvers and immerse them in music, sports and arts to stimulate their love of learning. Our ultimate goal is to ensure children are happy and achieve their full, academic potential. We cannot do this alone and so fully expect parents to play active roles in their children’s school lives.

Thank you for taking the time to view our website. Any parents or prospective members of staff with further questions are warmly encouraged to contact us.
