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.  

The trust believes 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. 

We are now looking for inspirational, pioneering leaders who want to take ownership and shape our trust as we move forward.  Please email me via if this could be you. 

We hope that this website, and our Information Pack for Governors and Leaders’ (from the recent Diocesan Roadshow), will provide you with further information about BOAT and how you can join us on this new journey.
