Welcome to the Minerva Learning Trust website.

The Minerva Learning Trust is a group of schools in West Dorset, working in partnership “to create an outstanding, inspirational and inclusive learning community that meets the needs of all young people for their present and future global citizenship”. (Memorandum of Understanding). This is not a sponsored academy Trust but one which has seen the benefits of working together and believes that we are best placed to understand and meet the needs of the children in our care.

The schools involved - Bridport Primary School, Burton Bradstock CE School, St Mary’s CE School and The Sir John Colfox Academy - all share the view that improving the quality of teaching and learning is best done through collaboration, sharing and joint activities. They share a fundamental belief that education should be exciting, nurturing, challenging and fulfilling for all those involved and seek to achieve this through joint events for students, sharing of good practice amongst staff and working closely with parents and the local community. We are committed to providing an exceptional education which successfully prepares students for their role in the modern world.

We hope you enjoy reading more about our Trust and our vision for education in our area.
