What is the Healthy Learning Trust?

The Healthy Learning Trust is a Multi Academy Trust established on 1st September 2017 with Flixton Girls School (FGS) in Trafford, being the lead school. The MAT members and trustees are composed of high level professionals working regionally, nationally and internationally in Education, Health, Finance, Post-16 Education, Community Safety, Physical Education, Sport and Outdoor Learning. Their considerable professional expertise, networks and partnerships bring additional benefits and opportunities for our schools going way beyond those offered in standard multi academy trusts. 

Our Trustees share a common commitment and desire to bring about healthy and successful futures for young people leading to tangible social mobility including routes into health related careers and the best possible opportunities for young people of all abilities, interests and backgrounds.

Working together with member schools the Healthy Learning Trust is able to provide central support services delivering financial efficiencies alongside our Education Consultancy where our schools collectively provide expertise, advice and support based on a proven track record of success.

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.
