Welcome to The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT) website. I am delighted to be the CEO of our dynamic and forward-thinking Multi-Academy Trust.

TPLT is, in law, an educational charity as are all Multi-Academy Trusts; we support primary and secondary schools in the South West of England. At our core is a passion to put 'Students First' and deliver exceptional education for every single child - - - for every single family.

We do this through a relentless drive for academic excellence within a common set of clear values. We want to spread lots of fun and happiness into what we do, both as an employer of 750 colleagues and as an educational charity responsible for 5,000 students. We firmly believe that happy schools are also high-achieving and successful places.

We strive for great partnerships between students, parents, carers, staff and the wider community that create exceptional student outcomes.

We 'Cherish our Staff', we believe they are amazing, and are passionate to empower them through support, training and career opportunities. We are an employer of choice in the region - and want to remain so through an innovative package of staff ‘perks’ and opportunities.

With such brilliant people all aiming for the same goals, we are able to ensure every student achieves all that they are capable of and much more, regardless of background or ability. Equality of opportunity is at the heart of TPLT - the core value.

If you wish to contact me, either as a potential employee or as a family wishing to know more, then please do. We have a policy called 'Raving Fans' - in essence we want people to leave our schools not merely saying ’that was good’ but thinking ‘WOW - what a place' and what a culture. Part of that is about openness and responsiveness so do contact me directly at any time - you will get a speedy reply - neville.coles@theplt.org.uk

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for visiting our website.

CEO and Accounting Officer

TPLT schools start partnership with Brain Tumour Research

EIGHT Somerset schools have chosen to support Brain Tumour Research in memory of a community police officer who sadly died from the disease.

The schools, which are all part of The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT), have selected Brain Tumour Research as their official charity of the year.

They picked the charity after Jim Murray, a friend of TPLT, died of the disease in December 2020 at the age of 53.
