Welcome to the Trust

Welcome to the Trust

Chief Executive Officer

I am delighted to introduce myself as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO)  of Tennyson Learning Community. 

As CEO, I have a key role in ensuring that all academies within the Trust are providing effective, developmental and exciting provision to all of our learners.   

The Tennyson Learning Community works with many organisations outside of the trust and has ambitious plans to continue this through the provision of bespoke support and training to all partner schools and is supporting its academies to become the very best that they can be.  

I have a strong belief in providing every child in the MAT the opportunity to develop the life skills necessary to become confident and successful lifelong learners. As Chief Executive Officer, I am working with our central team and academy leaders to achieve this for all children, regardless of their starting points.  

I have been Headteacher here since 2006 and have substantial experience of school improvement as a National Leader of Education. (NLE) 

 Our academies are encouraged to develop as their own distinctive schools, believing this is how they can best respond to local need.  We do, however, work within a common structure and ethos rooted within the TLC vision.  We are creating a collaborative culture of continuous and joint improvement in teaching and learning where diversity is celebrated. I am a strong advocate for improving standards for our disadvantaged children.  

 I am very proud to lead the Tennyson Learning Community and encourage you to find out more about us.  If you would like to visit, please get in touch. You will be warmly welcomed.

Director of Education 

My name is Jo Quince and I am the Director of Education for the Trust.  My role is to ensure academy effectiveness and work alongside leaders within the trust to ensure that every child has the opportunities to be the very best they can be.  It is vital that all of the pupils in the Tennyson Learning Community are given the best chances to achieve and succeed. 

We aim to work within schools in the trust to help guide, challenge and support our partners to enable pupils to be happy, safe and ready to learn.  The well-being of our staff is also important to the Tennyson Learning Community and staff development is high on our agenda. 

We believe in guiding our communities to overcome barriers collaboratively and across the trust there will be a strong ethos around partnership.  Aiming high is also a key theme in the TLC and this will be disseminated throughout our schools, with many opportunities for partners to share excellence and leadership. 

Tennyson Road Primary has an a strong reputation for achievement and standards and our aim is that all of our children in the Tennyson Learning Community leave Primary School ready to face the challenges of High school and beyond. 

Our enriching and engaging curriculum prepares children for the next steps in life, broadens horizons as well as maximising potential.  We firmly believe school should be an enjoyable experience for not only our pupils, but also our parents and carers and we look forward to working closely with you.
