The Bay Learning Trust



The Bay Learning Trust was set up by Ripley St Thomas Church of England Academy in 2017. Ripley is a large Academy with over 1700 students, 400 of whom are in the Sixth Form. The Academy has been graded “Outstanding” in its last two Ofsted inspections. Ripley has its own SCITT (School Centred Initial Teaching Training), which was also graded “Outstanding” in 2017.

In 2018 we were delighted to welcome Carnforth High School into our Trust family, and then Morecambe Bay Academy and Central Lancaster High School in 2019.
