The Greywood Multi-Schools Trust
The Greywood Multi-Schools Trust aims to bring together a group of schools with a shared vision to develop a learning community that brings real benefits to students, staff, parents and the wider community.

Our MST is based on the following founding principles:

the capacity of our community of schools to improve further
As such we aim to be a Multi-Schools Trust that other schools will choose to join, with the Chief Executive recruited from outside any of the member schools, to retain the sense of equal partners coming together.
