Eden Academy Trust

Welcome from the Chair of the Trust

I sit as the Chair of Trustees for the Multi Academy Trust that oversees the governance of Eskdale, Jesmond Gardens, Bluebell Meadow and Stranton Academies. It is the job of the trustees to ensure schools within the MAT fulfil their duty to educate our children in a safe, efficient and effective environment and to set a vision with our Schools to provide the very best learning experiences for our students.


We are a trust absolutely committed to developing the ‘whole child’ and to helping pupils develop the highest of ambitions. We aim to deliver the finest learning environment for all children and seek to provide inspirational experiences to help our pupils achieve their potential. However academic success is only half the story: our schools are all high performing, but throughout them there is an ethos of care for the students that is greater than academic achievement. We are an inclusive trust, filled with staff that seek what is good for all pupils, with a clear commitment to the pastoral needs and wellbeing of every child.
