Welcome to the Ocean Learning Trust which formed as a Multi Academy Trust on 1st July 2015 consisting initially of four Bournemouth community and church primary schools:
St Luke’s Primary, Heathlands Primary, St Clement’s & St John’s Infant and Bethany Junior Schools.
Our schools have their own Headteacher and Local Governing Body and are encouraged to develop their distinctive character, ethos and values within the communities they serve. We are committed to enabling each school to flourish with a high degree of autonomy within a culture of collaboration, challenge and mutual support.
Taking Learning Deeper, Wider, Further
The OCEAN Learning Trust is a community of schools committed to working together for the common good, empowering every school to improve the life opportunities of all our children. The collective vision is to provide an inclusive, world class education, to enable children to become inspired, self-motivated and successful lifelong learners and global citizens. We strive for our schools to be outstanding in every respect and to achieve this through robust school-to-school challenge and support. Teaching and Learning Excellence is promoted by sharing effective practice, ideas, resources and personnel within and beyond the Trust.
Our aim is to:
Keep children and their achievement and wellbeing at the heart of all we do
