Founded in 2012, REAch2 Academy Trust is the UK's largest primary-only academy trust in the country. It is a growing charitable organisation currently supporting circa 60 primary academies across England.
11 Before 11
11 Before 11 is a set of promises that help our children to be in the driving seat in their own lives. They are a series of seminal experiences that we want every child in the REAch2 family to have experienced before they leave us to go to secondary school aged 11.
