Welcome to The Sigma Trust

The Sigma Trust is a local partnership of academies in North East Essex. Sigma was formally established in September 2016 and currently consists of 8 secondary schools and 4 primary schools.

The Greek letter Sigma (Σ) is used in Mathematics and IT to denote “the sum of” hence its adoption as our name.

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.
