We describe Wellspring as a community, rather than as a Trust. ‘Trust’ can be misunderstood, ‘Community’ cannot. Wellspring is actually an amalgamation of what were five separate Trusts and many schools which were previously maintained, who work together in common cause and for the betterment of themselves and of one another.
Wellspring is a community of communities. We have communities of Academies clustered in our West, Central and East regions. We have a community of Primary, Special and Alternative Academies. We have some small federated communities in localities.
We have communities of practice that have come together of their own accord to pursue matters common to them. We have communities of governors, and more. All of these communities co-exist happily within an overall Wellspring community.
Wellspring provides the infrastructure, resilience and assurance that enables each of these communities to thrive.
