The First Federation Trust opened in 2014, building on the success of a previous federation of six schools. Currently the trust consists of fifteen schools stretching across the South Coast of Devon.

Working in partnership, we want to build upon previous success and ensure that all of our member schools are the best that they can be. Currently, three of the schools in the trust are judged as Outstanding. Eight are judged as Good with several having Outstanding features. The remaining schools are rapidly improving schools, three of which are currently being sponsored by First Federation.

The vision of the trust is that every child should go to an Outstanding School and be taught by exceptional teachers. We are an inclusive trust firmly rooted in Christian Values. We have a shared vision of growth which encompasses Church and community schools.  Children have one chance at their education and we want to ensure we make this chance the best one possible. As a trust we ensure everything we do is rooted in ‘Creating Futures’
