Richard Huish Trust

Richard Huish Trust is an independent charitable organisation originally established by Richard Huish College to support local schools.

The Trust has a clear vision to provide exceptional education and training through the delivery of a holistic and vocational curriculum. With the very rare benefit of having a Sixth Form College within the Trust, Richard Huish is uniquely placed to facilitate young people’s progression throughout their early years and school career and beyond into further or higher education, training and employment.

The Trust aims to nurture the individuality of its member academies, identifying the areas of strength and distinctive features of the local community to promote sustainable improvement.

The Richard Huish Multi Academy Trust (MAT) model enables a school the potential to retain its unique characteristics by offering Headteachers a high degree of autonomy in the work of leading their schools, with the freedom to focus on teaching and learning whilst being supported by the Central Trust Team.
