We are delighted that the Sea View Trust, located in the North West of England, was borne out of the merger of The View Trust and Blackpool Multi Academy Trust on 1st November 2019.  The Trust is proud to be a community organisation that serves local children and families, currently located across Blackpool and Rossendale. Notwithstanding our academy 'status', we remain wholly committed to working in partnership with Local Authorities, mainstream and special schools from the maintained, academy and independent sectors to support all children.

The Sea View Trust currently incorporates Anchorsholme Primary Academy, Devonshire Primary Academy, Revoe Leaning Academy, Park Community Academy, Tor View School and Valley College. The Trust welcomes every school’s right to be unique and respond to the needs of their children, families and wider communities. Our aim is for the Trust to underpin school improvement, providing all our academies with a secure base from which to grow and flourish.

The Trust's vision is to work as a cohesive MAT, bringing together culturally aligned schools where a climate of nurture and respect leads to challenge, aspiration and achievement for all. Working in collaboration, we seek to support the provision of high quality education through self-help and continuous improvement. Our enduring aspiration is to ensure that we offer value for money and maximise the resources available for all pupils within the Trust, the most important resource being our dedicated and professional staff.

In addition to our thriving schools and college, a key part of the the success of the Trust is the Teaching School and the vibrant East Lancashire Inclusion Partnership (ELIP). The Trust also has very strong links with Blackpool Teaching School Alliance (TSA) and through these partnerships we deliver on our vision of sustainable cross-phase and cross-sector school improvement. Effective School to School support and innovative recruitment and retention strategies support and grow teachers from NQT to Executive Headship. Our well-established offer incorporates Initial Teacher Training (ITT) with the Pennine Lancashire SCITT and Blackpool TSA, together with a programme of Continuing Professional and Leadership Development (CPLD) for class-based and support staff working in schools. Over the past six years, the Tor View Teaching School has secured an excellent reputation at local, regional and national levels.

The Trust has an inclusive growth strategy and, as such, is seeking to identify and welcome partners who are keen to develop and grow in unison.  Should you require further information or wish to enquire about joining us, please do not hesitate to get in touch, we would be delighted to hear from you.
