Premier Learning Trust is a multi-academy trust working with Holland Park Primary School and Alton Park Primary School.
A multi–academy trust (MAT) is a single entity established to undertake a strategic collaboration to improve and maintain high educational standards across a number of schools. A group of schools form a single MAT which has overarching responsibility for their governance. The MAT is the most formalised type of collaborative structure available for schools.
All academies within a MAT are governed by one trust and a single board of Directors. This is the organisation that runs a number of academies under a single charitable company. The board of Directors is responsible for decisions relating to how each academy is run, however, each individual academy retains its own governing body and the Trust delegates some of its functions to the governing body.
The MAT will be accountable and responsible for the performance of the each of the academies in the chain and may delegate its decision-making powers to the governing boards of the individual academies if it wishes. The multi-academy trust will enter into a master funding agreement with the Secretary of State for Education and funding is allocated to each individual academy via a supplemental agreement between each academy and the Secretary of State for Education.
A further opportunity to evolve and develop the brand identity, Premier Learning Trust needed a folder to contain, letters, reports, and other appropriate materials. The folder had to be bold, eye-catching and professional that also is strong enough to have constant use.
Pylon Design proposed continuing the development of the Premier Learning Trust corporate brand by designing a vibrant solution that creatively incorporated all the elements of the identity. The bold use of the corporate colours made a real impact to the look and brand and related consistently to the stationery range. The folder has a capacity for two pockets on the inside and slots for a business card on one of these. The three mission goals and a school quote are in a prominent position adding further interest to an attractive and useful solution.
