Welcome to the Fort Pitt Thomas Aveling Academies Trust (FPTA) website.

The Trust’s aims are to ensure that all children within our schools gain a first rate education, develop the skills necessary for the next stage in their lives and equip them with the personal values and attributes that will make them successful in a fast changing world.

We are all based in Medway and knowing the area well means we are aware of, and work tirelessly in a co-operative manner, to both minimise the pressures and strains that local children experience and maximise the potential they all have for great success.   Each part of the Trust works collaboratively in sharing ideas and best practice and in generating new opportunities for pupils and students.

There are currently 5 schools in our Trust – A Grammar School, 2 High Schools, A Primary and 1 Junior School – but there is potential for us to welcome and incorporate a couple more schools if approached.  We have very high expectations of our staff and students and in return, provide vast amounts of support to help everyone achieve their best.

I do hope you enjoy visiting our website.  Please follow the links to our individual schools to see not only the common ethos that we share as a Trust but also our own distinctive characters.
