Societas Trust


Carmountside Primary Academy is an associate member of the Societas Multi-Academy Trust.

This is an equal partnership of 6 primary academy settings and two associate member settings: 

Alsagers Bank Primary

Ashgreen Primary Academy

Carmountside Primary Academy

Ellison Street Primary

Gladstone Primary Academy

Goldenhill Primary Academy

Oaklands Nursery School

Summerbank Primary Academy


Great learning opportunities for ALL is at the heart of the Societas Vision:

To create a sustainable, professional community, where all learners are valued and encouraged to achieve their potential, and all individuals are respected.

Whilst our shared drivers and values underpin the ethos in each setting, each one is also valued as an individual entity with its own unique identity – so at Societas:

  • All settings work collaboratively, not competitively – there is no lead setting;
  • Each setting retains its own senior leadership team and business manager;
  • Each setting retains its own local governing board.

To ensure each setting has an equal voice in the work of the Trust as a whole, a unique governance structure has been developed where each setting has representation on the Directors’ and Executive Boards.              

All settings have appreciated the benefits of collaborative working over a number of years, albeit not all together in the first instance. We have come to further appreciate the possibilities of formalising the partnership we currently have and of the potential future benefits that our partnership will bring for all stakeholders.

Our shared values include:

  • Honesty
  • Transparency
  • Trust
  • Challenge
  • Integrity
  • Accountability
  • Respect
  • Moral Leadership
  • Professional regard
  • Collaboration
  • Physical Health and Well Being for all
