What is the Healthy Learning Trust?

The Healthy Learning Trust is a new Multi Academy Trust (MAT) with Flixton Girls School (FGS) being the lead school.

Our Vision

The Healthy Learning Trust empowers young people to enhance their own lives and the lives of others through our FIVE PATHWAYS to HEALTH & WELL-BEING & SCHOLARSHIP.  We secure progression into health related careers through strategic partnerships with the NHS, universities and health and well-being providers to create opportunities for health-related career progression.


Why the Healthy Learning Trust?

A focus for a Healthy Future

The networks, expertise and partnerships that will be made available to the Trust go way beyond those offered in standard MAT models.

The Trust has a firm belief in the importance and significance of health and well-being (physical and emotional) on academic outcomes for young people. Statistics demonstrate that students who take part in health related programmes at get better external examination results.

The Trust focuses on developing career pathways for students into healthcare and this ties in with our innovative curriculum development based on our Five Pillars.
