We are sailing!

We are delighted that St Nicolas and St Mary's CE Primary School, in Shoreham, has now joined 'BOAT'.  This marks an exciting stage for the trust as we seek to work in partnership to deliver high quality education experiences to all our children.  This includes providing an innovative, inspirational and inclusive curriculum, driven by research and best practice. 

We are aspirational for every child to achieve their potential and be equipped with ‘wisdom for life’, as we work in partnership with local churches and local communities.  We care deeply for our children and their well-being during these difficult times.  

We believe in the importance of collaborative partnership working. Although we are a small trust, we are working with a wide range of partners and service providers so that we have both the expertise and capacity to be a strong and effective trust. 

The DfE are proactively encouraging schools to join a trust. We hope that this website will provide you with further information about BOAT and how you can join us on this new journey.
