Bright Futures Learning Trust

Bright Futures Learning Trust is a multi-academy trust currently made up of 4 Woking schools; Goldsworth Primary School, St. John’s Primary School, Knaphill Lower School and Knaphill School. Goldsworth Primary became an academy in 2012 and St. John’s joined them in December 2013. We were delighted when the Knaphill schools joined the trust in July 2020.

When schools are part of a multi-academy trust (MAT), they benefit from working together with the other schools in their trust. Leaders, teachers and staff at all levels are able to support each other, share ideas and practice, come up with solutions to problems they may face and no-one need ever feel that they are alone. The Trust is there to support and challenge each school to be the very best it can be and provide a first class education for all of the children in its care.

A message from our CEO

Bright futures for children

Bright Futures Learning Trust believes passionately that every child in its care should leave school with a bright future ahead of them. We are relentless in our work to provide the best education we can to enable our children to believe in themselves and the potential inside each one of them. We enable them to seek out opportunities to learn as much as they can and to imagine possibilities beyond their immediate experience. This in turn helps them to successfully and positively contribute to the world around them, leading them to live fulfilled, happy and extraordinary lives.​
