Welcome to iExel Education Trust


Welcome from our CEO

At iExel, we place the learning, development, and outcomes for our young pupils at the heart of everything we do. It is this very reason that we create brighter futures.

We are an inclusive Trust – our academies, pupils, and staff are one whole family – and we strive to create a happy, exciting, and thriving environment for all.

Working together, our academies support all pupils to ensure they can overcome barriers to learning, aim high in their aspirations, and make a positive impact within the communities we serve and beyond.

While compassion, encouragement and motivation are all key in helping pupils thrive, our commitment is also shown through the investments we make to ensure our academies are the best they can be. This includes channelling more than £1.5 million into our learning, teaching, and laboratory facilities across our three academies this year. We also invest heavily in the professional development of our staff and take particular pride in this endeavour.

Guided by the seven Nolan Principles of public life, iExel is incredibly transparent and forward looking, with clear vision and strategy to achieve an outstanding education and experience for all.

I am sure you will find our website detailed and informative, providing you with a glimpse of what life at iExel is like. We very much welcome you to join us on this journey to brighter futures, either as a pupil, parent, colleague, or an academy. Our doors are always open, contact us!

Professor M. Khurshid Khan

CEO of iExel Education Trust

Welcome from our Chair of Trustees

For me, it’s quite simple; pupils only get one chance.

It is our role as leaders to provide the best quality education for all learners, regardless of background, gender, faith and ability. I am determined that one’s birthplace should not predetermine outcomes for life opportunities for young people.

As we all know, education is the key to improving life changes and raising aspirations for young learners and their contribution to communities as globally conscious active citizens.

To do this we need the highest quality staff and leadership to secure outcomes for learners. We have full commitment to ongoing professional development of all staff and expect the highest standards.

I take pride in our consistent provision of all the above across our schools and workforces. Now is the time to unleash the potential in others.

Mr Ali Jan Haider

Chair of Trustees

Welcome from our Chair of Members

All of us at iExel are committed to delivering our vision and mission, and ensuring that every pupil, no matter their ability or situation, has access to the very best opportunities and strives for educational excellence throughout their journey with us.

A key part in this journey is the role they can play in serving our community, and ensuring they understand the contributions they can make and the skills that are needed to address demand for jobs, to support society and become well-rounded citizens.

As part of this, and as Chair of Members, we will ensure the Trust is held accountable across all its priority areas – from academic achievement and operational excellence to investment and growth. This will drive our vision of outstanding education and provide an environment for both pupils and staff, which is supportive, motivational, and aspirational. Through a culture of kindness, resolve and empathy, we can become a symbol of unity and create substantial impact on the lives of our pupils and those around us.

Together, we will grow, achieve and excel.
