Welcome to the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF) website.


The CLF is a partnership of schools that is sponsored by Rolls Royce PLC and The University of the West of England (UWE). The CLF now sponsors fifteen academies in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, and Weston super Mare. This means that we are responsible and accountable for the education of 8000 students between the ages of 3 and 19 and for the employment and support of over 1500 staff.

Our vision is based upon our mission of "Embedding Excellence" and the work that is now shared between our schools at senior and middle leadership level, teachers and support staff underpins this every day. All of our staff are employed by the CLF and this enables us to give colleagues the opportunity to work in more than one academy either for their own development or because the skills that they have are needed by more than one of our schools.

We are moving forward into the next era with confidence, building on the success of our 3-19 collaboration and continuing to change the face of learning and community cohesion for the regions in which our academies are located, giving our students the best possible life chances they deserve.
