Welcome to Mayflower
Specialist School Academy Trust

Inspiring creative learners to succeed and flourish in tomorrow’s world.

Welcome from the Executive Principal

I am very pleased to welcome you to our website and as Executive Principal I am very proud of all our learners (pupils at Warren Wood and students at Aegir).

Our sustained success is based on our mission to aim for excellence in all that we do and encourage others to do the same so that all are happy, healthy, safe and successful.  We foster a culture of learning by ensuring mutual respect and a values approach to learning and good behaviour, within an ethos based upon high quality teaching and support. We believe that all pupils can achieve well and we have a balanced curriculum with more personalised routes to success. This is supplemented by a wide range of extra-curricular experiences and opportunities. We call this our ‘Curriculum for Life promoting British Values and Character Education’. We aim for all our learners to be academically successful from whatever their starting point, but also to be prepared for adulthood as happy and effective citizens.

I hope that you find our website a valuable resource for seeking information about our specialist academies, their ethos and range of activities. Whether you are a parent/carer, potential student/ pupil or visitor, it is designed with your needs in mind.  However, if you are considering a place at one of our schools for your son or daughter, then please do get in touch and visit us. You are assured of a warm welcome, as are all our parents and visitors.

Welcome from the Chair of the Trust

As Chairman of the Mayflower Specialist Schools Academy Trust I am pleased to welcome you to our new website. I am so fortunate to be part of what are two wonderful academies of learning with Aegir Specialist Academy and Warren Wood Specialist Academy. The Trustees and I support and encourage our Staff, Children and Young People in the work they do to help all our learners achieve their full potential. On a personal note it has been my privilege to be part of our academies for some time now and I continue to see our achievements flourish.

What we are able to do is see our children grow in mind and body with most importantly a smile on their faces within a warm, welcoming and safe environment for all our Children, Students and Young People.

My role as Chair is to be an encouraging, constructive support to our Executive Principal, a challenging listening ear to him, our Academy Principals, or indeed any of our very hard working staff.  Being Chairman of the Mayflower Trust is both challenging and rewarding; it is what makes everyday enjoyable. My fellow trustees and I do what is a most onerous but enjoyable task knowing that what we attempt to do sees great benefits to all our Children and Young people, families and the wider academy partnerships of which we are a part.

I myself am greatly privileged to be part of all of this.

Michael Page J.P.
