​Rise Park Academy Trust was inaugurated in September 2014, when its first two academies, Rise Park Infant School and Rise Park Junior School, were opened. 

The Trust is managed by Rise Park Infant School, which was endorsed by the Department for Education in April 2014 to run three schools within the Trust.  It is also the approved DfE Sponsor for Rise Park Junior School.

As two organisations we are now in the process of agreeing a new vision and direction for our schools, our main priorities being to continue to improve and enhance teaching and learning, strengthen our links with our very supportive wider school community, enhance our learning environment and ensure that policies and procedures of both schools are harmonised in order to effect a smooth continuous transition for our pupils, parents and staff.

Board of Directors

Rise Park Academy Trust is regulated by a Board of Directors who oversee all strategic financial and resource administration, as well as a local governing body for each school which has responsibility for reviewing all aspects of the school curriculum.
