The Learning in Harmony Trust was formed in September 2014 by Sheringham Primary School and JFK Special School. In 2015, we were joined by two other Newham schools, Upton Cross Primary School and Hartley Primary School, and three further schools joined us in the first term of the 2016-17 school year - Blenheim Primary School and the Federation of Thorpe Greenways Junior and Infant Schools, all of which are located in Southend.Drew Primary School, also in Newham, joined us in January 2017.
We do expect to further increase our number of schools and expand our geographical range in the near future, but there is no intention to outgrow our capacity. We want to be big enough to sustainably do all the amazing things we want to do, but small enough to still know each other very well.
For us, learning in harmony doesn't mean all schools have to be the same. We are bound together by our belief that by working as a partnership in one organisation we can make a significant difference to the children and young people in our schools. We are proud to have both similarities and differences as schools, and see this diversity as a strength. Our shared values unite us.
