NEST Mission, Vision and Values


We have a Moral purpose to provide excellence and opportunity for all, to enable lives to be transformed"



  • We believe all choices and decisions should be child centred. Pupils’ academic, emotional and social well-being is paramount to enable each child to aspire and be inspired with the opportunities within our schools

  • We believe that enhancing pupil progress and achievement is best realised through challenge, collaboration and partnership, based on strong accountability between member schools.

  • Cooperation and interaction with stakeholders will create pride in NEST and a desire to be involved in its work. In addition, key partnerships with other organisations offer further opportunities to enhance learning and teaching across our schools.


    Principles and Values


    Our values are our set of guiding principles which taken together, define what we do and how we do it. They allow us to make the decisions and take action which drive us towards our vision and keep to our core mission. Our values are based on the cooperate values of our partner schools. The words may be different but the moral purpose remains the same.


Our schools VALUE:-

Achievement, Success, Inclusivity, Inspiration, Responsibility, Respect, Honesty, Trust, Enjoyment, Leadership, Collaboration, Opportunity, Confidence, Determination, Resilience, Creativity


Our NEST Core Values are supported through our principle of achievement inspired through the NEST ‘CHOICE’ circle




Nexus Education Schools Trust believe that all decisions and choices should be child centred. We aim to nurture every individual, provide excellent education outcomes enabling our pupils to succeed and ultimately transform the life opportunities and aspirations of our pupils, allowing them to be fulfilled individuals within an ever changing world.


As an organisation we recognise that each school’s communities are different. We value each school’s uniqueness and its contribution; in ensuring pupils have the best education and experiences. Each school is distinct to the success of the organisation. We believe passionately that together we can make a greater difference; providing higher education outcomes and wider opportunities for our pupils and greater prospects for our staff and communities.


Each organisation commits to our CHOICE values. It is a reminder that we have made a choice to be a part of the wider organisation of Nexus Education Schools Trust and that we are all obligated to the community as a whole.
