Welcome to The White Horse Federation

It is a pleasure to welcome you to The White Horse Federation website.

The White Horse Federation was founded with the aim of improving the life chances and raising the aspirations of young people. The Trust believes in the power of a first-rate curriculum: such an education is the best foundation for helping young people to succeed and overcome social barriers, irrespective of their backgrounds or starting points.

The White Horse Federation runs a growing network of primary, secondary and special schools with clusters in Swindon, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, and Berkshire. Working with young people who are often materially and socially deprived, The White Horse Federation seeks to provide a first-rate education and to raise ambitions at all its academies. I am a strong believer in the power of outstanding education to transform lives. It is a great privilege for me to lead The White Horse Federation and I work tirelessly to make sure we deliver the very best we can for each and every one of our pupils.

Our aim is for our students to leave our academies ready to take their place in the world - well-educated, motivated and with strong leadership skills, personally accomplished and determined to make a positive and lasting contribution to the world. We firmly believe that a child’s background should not be a barrier to success and we are committed to delivering an education that broadens students’ horizons in a truly transformative way.

We hope that our website gives you a feel for life at The White Horse Federation and reflects the pride we have in our pupils and staff.
