About Us

Welcome from our Chief Executive

As Chief Executive of Archway, I’m pleased to welcome you to our website to learn more about us and all that we offer as an education provider, an employer, a civic leader and a key part of our local communities.

I’m immensely proud of our trust; all that we have built and all that we stand for. We have a strong history dating back to 1706 when the first school in what is now our trust was set up in the porch of St Mary’s Church High Pavement to provide free education for the poor, in order to ‘lift them out of poverty’.  In many ways we stay firm to that mission today, believing deeply that the children that attend any of our schools should have a transformational educational experience no matter what their starting point or circumstance. I am passionate that we should allow children to grow and flourish and that their time with us should close gaps, enable social mobility and build cultural capital. Education is about growing the leaders of the future and helping them to play their part in making our world a better place. It is about social cohesion, compassion, care and building our communities.

We have evolved and developed into the diverse and dynamic trust we are today by living out our values of inclusion, collaboration and excellence and putting children and young people at the heart of all we do.

Whilst celebrating our past, we are also ambitious about our future. Our continued growth will enable us to welcome many more students across the East Midlands into our vibrant family of learners where all are cared for, receive a high-quality education and experience every opportunity to be successful.

We’re committed to giving every child the very best start that we can, through excellent teaching and exceptional personal support in an inclusive, values based environment. Our aim is to help children and young people to understand and believe in themselves, respect and care for others and develop a wide understanding of faith, the world around them and their place within it.

As an employer, we value all our colleagues and, whether they are classroom-based or not, understand that each and every one is making a difference to the lives of our young people. We’re proud to work together and we expect every colleague to share our vision of ‘Working Together. Transforming Lives.’ We have a strong focus on development and wellbeing to ensure our colleagues are challenged, motivated and happy in their work.

I hope you find the information you need on our website. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions – we look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,
Sian Hampton, Chief Executive Officer
