Our Partner Schools

Pimlico Academy

Pimlico Academy, our flagship secondary school, boasts a state of-the-art building, exceptional facilities, dynamic staff and a pioneering curriculum at Key Stage 3 that influences how other schools teach. The basics – literacy, numeracy and positive conduct – underpin every lesson.

Pimlico Academy’s pupils are significantly above the national average in terms of deprivation. The Trust is committed to transforming the life chances of all its pupils. This is reflected in the fact that 70% of the summer 2015 KS4 cohort entered and 37% achieved the academic EBACC qualification (compared to a national success rate of 24%). Of pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium funding, 31% achieved the EBACC in 2015 (compared to the 2014 national figure of 11%).

The Academy was rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted in 2010, two years after it joined our family.

Laureate Academy

Laureate Academy in Hemel Hempstead joined our family at the start of 2019, and has quickly developed an aspirational culture in which students strive to do their best. The transformation has been remarkable - the conduct and attitude of students is excellent, and teachers are free to teach the subject that they love using innovative approaches. You will join an academy that has a supportive leadership team, a cohesive staff body, and a very purposeful environment in which to work.


Barclay Academy is Future Academies’ newest academy, having recently opened on a leafy and spacious site in Stevenage. We have set the foundations in place for the academy to become a place that offers an exceptional standard of education for the children of the local community. You will be joining the new academy at an exciting time as it embeds new approaches in teaching, and instills an aspirational culture from which all students will benefit.

Partner routes – PGCE with QTS

 West London Free School

From its foundation in 2011, the West London Free School has been at the forefront of education, both locally and nationally. The school has a distinct and very clear ethos, which is to provide a classical liberal education for pupils of all backgrounds, emphasising scholarship and academic excellence.

The curriculum is rich and knowledge-based, and ensures that all of the pupils are provided with an education that includes the materials and methods of the great scholars, thinkers and academics.  Pupils learn how to study with rigour, diligence and application, so that they are able to study, absorb and understand their subjects at increasingly challenging levels as they progress through the school. Find out more about them on their website.


Tri-Borough Alternative Provisions (TBAP) MAT is a network of schools that delivers alternative provision education in West London. Over the last three years it has undergone rapid and impressive growth to become the leading Multi-Academy Trust of its type in the country. There is a dynamic, forward-thinking staff team which has always striven to deliver the best possible outcomes for their learners. TBAP’s belief is that all children have the potential to become successful adults. Strong and healthy relationships with the learners and with each other mean that staff really know the learners and their needs and can ensure success is achieved by providing exactly the right support.
