Ouseburn Learning Trust

Who are we?

A unique group of seven Primary Schools and one Secondary School in the East of Newcastle upon Tyne working together to empower young people to excel as individuals and contribute to society.The Ouseburn Learning Trust is a charitable company of eight schools and six partnerorganisations in the East of Newcastle upon Tyne.


The Trust benefits our pupils, schools, partners and the community. Through a unique collaboration of its members, the Trust raises aspirations and attainment in our diverse young people, aged 3 to 19 by delivering consistently high quality teaching and inspirational life experiences.  The Trust was founded in October 2014. It is governed by ‘The Trust Board’, which consists of representative members from each of the schools and the partners.


A world class educational experience for young people aged 3-19.

We are delighted to have the chance to show how the eight schools in the Partnership wish to work together in the future and how this will benefit our schools, pupils and community. We firmly believe that by working more closely together with external partners we can build a world class educational experience for young people aged 3-19. 


The nature of education in England is changing rapidly. Much of this change is related to school governance and the changing role of the Local Authority which has a significantly reduced influence in many areas of education. In this environment the Governors and Headteachers of the eight schools in the Ouseburn Learning Trust believe that there is real advantage in the schools developing a closer and stronger collaborative relationship.


Our joint membership of a shared Trust will mean that everything that is already good about the current schools will be continued. Our governing bodies and school leaders will still have the same responsibilities for the education of your children as now. We believe that by establishing a Trust we can further enhance the quality of education and care that children now receive.
