About the employer

Pendle Education Trust is a family of five academies in East Lancashire, The Trust is sponsored by Nelson and Colne College, an Outstanding Further Education college in Pendle. Established in 2013, Pendle Education Trust continues to grow, welcoming new schools to our family.

As sponsor, the College has a simple belief; that its excellent performance and high expectations can be applied to the schools locally through effective and uncompromising leadership, management and governance. The College keenly understands the factors affecting educational success for people locally, and for this reason felt that local sponsorship was, and is, the ideal solution for the schools which surround it.

The Trust was established with support from Nelson and Colne College in response to a request from the DfE to support Walter Street Primary School, Brierfield; a school in special measures which had failed to improve. This fully sponsored Academy conversion took place in 2013 and the school is now called Pendle Primary Academy. Since becoming an Academy, it has been a continuing success story, achieving an Ofsted grading of ‘good’ - with outstanding behaviour and safety - in February 2015, as well as being named one of the top 50 performing or improving schools in England in 2015. In March 2018, it was named Primary School of the Year at the Shine a Light Awards for its commitment to developing pupils' communication skills.
