Aurora Academies Trust

Trust Vision and Values


Aurora is a multi-academy trust that is determined to provide the best possible standard of education to pupils in our nursery, primary and secondary academies across the south-east of England. We are determined that every child in our academies benefits from a challenging and knowledge rich curriculum that is expertly taught so that regardless of starting points, pupils are well equipped to be successful at the next stage of their education or transition to employment.


Aurora schools are unique and serve their own communities. Thus, our schools keep their own name, choose their own uniform and logo and ensure that they serve the needs of the pupils and families who attend them. However, because of the very collaborative manner in which our schools work together, best practice has emerged and so there are things that all of our schools do collectively. This is particularly true in relation to our reading curriculum and the work we have recently completed on the curriculum for foundation subjects. 


Aurora’s vision and values are best summed up in the Aurora Pillars that govern how our schools operate. 


One of Aurora’s unique aspects is our relationship with our sponsor, Pansophic Learning. Pansophic operates schools internationally, mainly in the US where they operate over 50 Charter Schools but they also have schools in Dubai, Switzerland and Africa. Three Pansophic executive officers are also trustees of Aurora and they help to provide strategic expertise to the Aurora Trust Board. There are also many other benefits of this partnership including some pupil-to-pupil communications as well as teacher exchanges that provide fantastic professional and cultural development for our staff.


We are all here to achieve the same thing, namely to provide a world class education for the young people in our care; each child… every day.
