About our trust

Extend Learning Academies Network became a multi-academy trust on 1 October 2017 and currently includes the following schools numbered on the map:


1. Banwell Primary School

2. Bournville Primary School

5. Mendip Green Primary School

6. Milton Park Primary School

7. Oldmixon Primary School

We do not believe in making every school in our network look like each other. We celebrate the individuality of each school within our network. 



The schools are situated in North Somerset within easy reach of Somerset, BANES (Bath and North Somerset) and South Bristol. North Somerset has a diverse range of vibrant  coastal areas, towns and villages offering something for everyone. 



Extend Learning Academies Network schools support a mixed demographic in both semi rural and urban settings across the county. This also includes an area of deprivation within the top 0.5% nationally.



Our schools are an established working group with a shared ethos and a history and culture of collaboration and collaborative development that has grown and evolved over the last 10+ years and continues to do so. This work has been key in the development of:


  • Teaching and learning
  • Subject specialism
  • Curriculum principles
  • Excellent classroom practice
  • Outstanding practice for all pupils
  • Enriched opportunities for learners
  • Culture of support and challenge
  • The sharing of best practice and resources


Our schools are all committed to taking full advantage of the opportunities that working in a collaborative multi academy trust presents, extending the capacity, sustainability and ability of the group to deliver an extraordinary education, experiences and outcomes for all young people.
