The Cranmer Education Trust

The Cranmer Education Trust’s mission is to be a leader of education and a provider of excellent schools which nurture children and young people and enable all to achieve, progress, and experience success, and to become good people, good neighbours and good citizens whom we are proud to know.

WE ARE A CHURCH OF ENGLAND TRUST.  THEREFORE, WE SERVE THE WHOLE COMMUNITY.  WE WELCOME ALL SCHOOLS, BOTH FAITH-DESIGNATED OR COMMUNITY, WHO WANT TO GO ON A JOURNEY TOGETHER TO BUILD A GREAT FUTURE FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE.

Our schools embrace the full age range from nursery to 19.  We welcome schools from all phases so that we can continuously improve our offer, particularly on transitions between key stages.

Our nationally accredited Initial Teacher Training arm, Manchester Nexus, trains 50+ (and increasing) new teachers per year, both primary and secondary, so that we have a pipeline of energetic, committed and skilled people for our schools.  Training and mentoring new teachers enables our staff to develop professionally and progress in their careers.  A growing trust provides further opportunities for career progression and helps us retain our people.

Our Teaching School Hub, The East Manchester Teaching School Hub, is a school-led centre of excellence for teacher training and development.

The Teaching School Hub provides high quality professional development to teachers and leaders at all stages of their careers across the region. We exist for children and young people, building their future through great teaching, great schools and great leadership.

East Manchester Teaching School Hub is committed to working together to do this through openness and dialogue. We invest together, learn together and share together.

We are a Church of England Trust.  Therefore, we serve the whole community.  We welcome all schools, both faith-designated or community, who want to go on a journey together to build a great future for children and young people.
