Galileo Academy Trust

The Galileo Multi-Academy Trust is a group of ten primary schools across the Redcar & Cleveland area. Galileo is a solid, unshakable, foundation defined by exceptional teaching experiences and shared values of learning, accountability, respect and integrity.

These values are at the very core of The Galileo Trust and firmly embedded in all of our academies. All leaders, teachers, staff, parents and children alike embrace the values to complement each individual academy’s values and visions.

A key component of the Galileo vision is having strong family values. Galileo is a family that embraces academy to academy support and the sharing of good practice throughout the trust. Every school and every individual is included in the vision. We actively encourage collaboration and work as a team to create and deliver the best possible education experiences for every pupil within the Galileo Trust.

We truly work together to benefit the communities in which we serve.

The corporate management and trustee responsibilities for the actions of the company is vested in the “trustees” of the Academy Trust (together, referred to as “the Trust Board”), who are company directors registered with Companies House. The Trustees are personally responsible for the actions of the Academy Trust and the schools and are accountable to the Members, to the Secretary of State for Education and to the wider community for the quality of the education received by all pupils of the schools and for the expenditure of public money. The Trustees are required, as trustees and pursuant to the Funding Agreements, to have systems in place through which they can assure themselves of the quality, safety and good practice of the affairs of the Academy Trust.

We believe that Galileo has nine exceptional trustees that have been selected for not only their skill set but also their desire to place children at the centre of their decision making. Please click the following links to learn more about the trustees.
