Join us and flourish - a message from our Chair of Trustees

The Quantock Education Trust (QET) is a fantastic organisation to be part of. Founded in 2016 by the Headteacher and Governors of Haygrove School, the Trust comprises a cross-phase and mixed group (church/non-church) of schools in Somerset.

The key common factor for schools within the Trust is that they all share a common vision and ambition to improve the life opportunities of all the children and young people in their community. What binds them is a strong sense of collective responsibility for the education of all children between 2 and 18, that seeks to remove any inhibiting factors associated with growing up in a rural community, particularly for those families in circumstances of deprivation.

All member schools must commit to protect the religious character of its schools as well as the individual ethos and diversity of each school community. We work very closely with the Diocese, and collaboration across our family of schools and our wider community, sits at the heart of our values. We don’t seek to clone our schools, instead celebrating and harnessing the uniqueness of each one for the better of all.   

You will have gained from this website a snapshot of the culture, ethos, curriculum and support that we provide. Life in the Quantock Education Trust is vibrant and dynamic. Integral to the development of the Trust is the importance of building capacity, sharing best practice and promoting excellence in teaching and learning from the very start of the academic journey through to the age of 18.


We are passionate about developing the whole-child, through a high-quality curriculum and programme of character education that will enable each child to develop into a well-rounded and good citizen with a lifelong passion for learning and ambition to succeed.We believe that at the heart of school improvement there is a need for a strong culture in which relationships are key to effective and productive collaboration. We are hugely ambitious for all learners across our Trust, regardless of background or ability. We are also keen to support the sustainability of our small local schools, ensuring equity of access to opportunities, curricular and non-curricular, particularly for those children and families who live in remote areas. As a multi-academy trust, we are committed to the development of talent and personal growth through an engaging and innovative approach to career planning through leadership pathways and an enriching offer of opportunities for Continuous Professional Development, including working in other Trust schools.

These are very exciting times for our Trust and we are keen to recruit ambitious, enthusiastic and highly committed professionals who are keen to develop their career with us.
