James Cook Learning Trust

Welcome from our CEO

James Cook Learning Trust


James Cook Learning Trust is a group of four primary schools in the south of Middlesbrough.  We have a common aim to provide the very best educational experiences to the children we serve.

By working together we strive hard to develop each child’s academic, personal, social, moral, spiritual and physical development.

The James Cook Learning Trust gained approval to become a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) on 1st September 2018 following a successful application to the Secretary of State for Education.

The Trust is founded on the deeply held belief that each child has the right to experience excellence every day.

It is a very exciting time for each school within the Trust as we move forward together.

Whether you are a new family looking to join one of our schools or one of our existing families, I hope you find this website useful and informative.
