Vision and values

Ivy Learning Trust is a small, inclusive family of community schools based in North London and Hertfordshire.

Our vision is to help to create a fair, just society.
This vision is based on four principles:

Ivy is one family

Good education is a birthright

Make it easy to make a difference

Local leaders know their schools best

For more information about our vision please click here.


We believe in a fair and just society. That is why we offer the very best education to all our children. In all our schools our learning culture creates reflective and resilient pupils who love, and take ownership of, their learning.


We are committed to staff well-being and have made great strides in reducing teacher workload, such as through our innovative and highly acclaimed ‘fast feedback’ approach to marking. We offer a culture of care, excellent professional development and exciting career opportunities across the Multi Academy Trust (MAT).


We aim to create partnerships and build relationships to support the teaching and learning of all our children. Each school within Ivy is an integral part of its local community.
