Welcome from our CEO - David Gurney

Welcome to Cockburn Multi-academy TrustDavid gurney

We believe every child deserves an exceptional education.

Our vision is to create a group of exceptional schools that radically improve students’ life chances. We seek to widen their aspirations; to reach destinations that are attainable and fulfilling. We work to raise attainment and provide exceptional teaching and learning for all our students through high expectations of academic success and behaviour

Cockburn Multi-academy Trust comprises of five schools; three secondary, one primary and one infant school.  The Trust is medium sized and all our school are located within the south Leeds area.

I know that there is something unique about the schools in our MAT.  Whilst they are at different stages of their journey of ‘Transformation to Excellence’ it is without doubt, the incredible staff teams that make the difference. 

As CEO, I am fortunate to work alongside such dedicated teams that are relentless in their determination to secure the very best outcomes for the young people.

Cockburn Multi-academy Trust’s growth model is in line with the White Paper. Our ambition is to further grow the Trust in all sectors.
