Welcome to The Sigma Trust

The Sigma Trust is a partnership of schools located in North East Essex covering both Colchester and Tendring. It incorporates schools that share the same mission, vision and values and have a strong history of working collaboratively.

Our belief is that achievement is for all and that no child should be left behind. Education should foster in its learners a curiosity to discover who they are and what they are capable of, together with developing the resilience for them to test the boundaries of their abilities and to build the skills necessary to face the future with confidence.

We recognise the uniqueness and achievements of each academy whilst ensuring that best practice becomes shared practice across the Trust. We seek to build a relationship where autonomy and accountability go hand in hand and where every school within The Sigma Trust is encouraged to be a giver and receiver of support.

We are not looking to work in isolation and will continue to collaborate with others to enhance the educational experience of children in the community. In so doing we aim to become a centre of educational excellence and innovation within the area.

The Sigma Trust will ensure that it secures the best possible outcomes for all learners and that all its academies are rated at least “Good” with the overall goal of ensuring outstanding provision. Our aspiration for growth is to develop our primary phase and become the MAT of choice for maintained schools and standalone academies in the area. We seek to work with schools that can subscribe to our values and who are prepared to take responsibility and share resources with others.
