Our vision is to create a collaborative partnership of schools to foster educational excellence and build a community of lifelong learning in Poole.
The Harbourside Learning Partnership is committed to give every child the best possible start in life by enabling children to be successful, confident and aspirational learners; securing the highest possible levels of achievement for all children and providing our children with a variety of rich moral and spiritual experiences.
Through this, we aim to create adults of integrity with a deep desire to contribute positively to their community and their world.
Working together for the benefit of our community
Our Multi-Academy Trust has been created by six Church of England and community schools coming together to form the Harbourside Learning Partnership: Baden-Powell & St. Peter's CofE Junior School, Courthill Infant School, Lilliput CofE Infant School, Longfleet CofE Primary School, Oakdale Junior School and Old Town Infant School & Nursery.
We chose to collaborate to foster a learning community where school improvement and a passion for learning are at the heart of what we do. While we share best practice, values and aims - we will celebrate each school's unique and individual characteristics - retaining individual identities, uniforms, ethos and, where relevant, Christian distinctiveness.
The Harbourside Learning Partnership works together for the benefit of the children and their families in a spirit of service for the community of Poole.
The work of all out staff, governors, Trustees and Members is guided by the following core principles:
