Welcome to the Trust

Ethos & Values


The ethos of the Basildon Academies Trust ‘Aspire – Believe – Achieve’ is reflected in an uncompromising belief from all stakeholders that our students can and will achieve in our learning communities, which are inclusive and supportive.


SMSC is at the heart of all of our academies.

All academies within the BAT set their development objectives under the following values:

S     Social Mobility: Equality of opportunity for our young people to aspire and achieve

M    Moral Purpose: Resilient active decision makers

S     Spiritual Awareness: Reflective citizens & curious learners

C     Cultural Capital: Equity of opportunity for our young people to aspire & achieve

Student Values

Our students have agency over the values we promote as an Academy. Our 6 student led values represent our role as UNICEF Gold Rights Respecting Ambassadors, the values of our curriculum and are at the heart of our work in promoting activism in our young people.
