The Ted Wragg Trust was established in 2010 with the aim to create an outstanding educational experience for all of Exeter’s children.

I joined the Trust in 2010, as Headteacher of St James School, because I could see the huge educational benefits of working with our lead Trust education partners Exeter College and the University of Exeter. We have now grown from a 1 school Trust to a 5 school Multi-Academy Trust (in 2017) responsible for the education of over 3000 children aged between 2-16.

Our academies are driven by an absolute determination to improve life chances for every child no matter what their ability. Our academies are identified by inspirational leadership and rich learning experiences.

Currently all our academies are graded as good with improvements identified in every school since they joined the Trust. 2016 exam results saw all our secondary schools placed in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress and in the top 15% for maths attainment.

Since the inception of the Trust I can see more and more of our students achieving their very best and making aspirational life choices, which is now allowing them to flourish in any context and as a result I feel hugely proud to be the CEO of this values driven Multi-Academy Trust.
