Thinking Schools Academy Trust

Isambard Brunel Junior School converted to an academy as part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust in November 2014 and, together with Newbridge Junior School, was a founder primary school academy in Portsmouth.

The Thinking Schools Academy Trust mission statement is to provide an outstanding school which will have an ethos of excellence and high expectations underpinned by the principles of a fully integrated thinking school.

The Thinking Schools Academy Trust is made up of a family of schools that work together to “improve the life chances” of all our children and young people. We share a common mission to nurture successful children who are confident and can think and act independently. Our cognitive approach to education defines us but does not create a “one size fits all” or an “academy-way of doing”.

Each member of our family is equally as important and will share in our direction and ethos.
