Sue Baldwin - Regional Schools Commissioner

Posted on 11th May 2021

‘Many of the Trusts we work with are interested in and participating in growth and development activities. One such is Sapientia Education Trust. Sapientia has 16 schools – six secondaries and ten primaries - across Norfolk and Suffolk, with seven of its schools joining in the last three years. Sapientia grew out of the founder school, Wymondham College, which is the largest state boarding school in the country, with successive Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ judgements to its name. Some of the key factors of successful growth at Sapientia have included: an excellent school improvement strategy, robust financial management, strong leadership across the trust exemplified by the CEO and National Leader of Education Jonathan Taylor, and extensive involvement and support to other schools and Trusts via vehicles such as the ENCOMPASS Teaching School Alliance (which Sapientia is a core member of). Driving up educational standards - not only in its own schools but within the region and beyond - has been the bedrock of Sapientia’s considerable achievement.’
