Eko Trust

Our family of schools

Eko Trust is a family of good and outstanding schools who collaborate to learn and deliver the best educational outcomes for our children. Eko is a growing Trust and is currently made up of seven schools: five primary and two all-through Social, Emotional and Mental Health Special schools all based in Newham, Barking & Dagenham, Ipswich and Hackney.

We welcome contact from other schools who wish to collaborate with us or want to join our family of good and outstanding schools.

The Trust grew out of the success and impact of a teaching school, and its capacity to challenge and support schools. Collaboration is at our core, with staff and trustees working together to learn to be ambitious and resilient.

The governing bodies wanted to ensure that all Eko Trust schools continued to serve the communities.  Pathways and Eko Pathways School have joined the Local Governing Bodies together to make sure we work together as specialist schools to provide the best of practice and that staff and children had great opportunities.  Eko Trust has the ambition to grow, to work with schools that want to learn and have skills and expertise to offer as well as those that want to learn and have challenges to solve.
