Leverhulme Church Of England and Community Trust
Leverhulme Church of England and Community Trust (LCECT) is a multi-academy trust based in Bolton, Lancashire, with two large secondary schools and a sixth form provision. We provide the highest quality of education that creates a community of happy, successful and well-rounded individuals who can flourish and make a difference in our world.
As a Trust, we work together to ensure that all children receive an excellent education irrespective of their starting point. We relish the opportunity to be a part of the much-needed regeneration of areas we work in and wish to play a full role in the wider communities. Our mission is to discover dreams, achieve ambitions and transform lives.
Our ambition for our students shines through as we ensure that a broad range of learning and extensive pastoral programmes provide students with the power and motivation to realise and keep growing their goals and aspirations.
We have high expectations of all students and staff, and progress is constantly monitored, reviewed and discussed in every subject, with extra support given when needed. We firmly believe that a high quality learning environment helps to support excellent teaching and learning, which is why we’re constantly making improvements and investments across our schools.

What is a Multi-Academy Trust?
A multi-academy trust (MAT) is a single organisation established to improve and maintain high educational standards across a number of member schools. Through collaboration and partnerships, the member schools can share expertise and resources. A MAT has responsibility for the overall governance, finance and performance of the member schools.
