REAch2 Academy Trust


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.

"Our passion is for primary education and we believe that children can achieve the highest academic standards at the same time as enjoying a rich, rewarding and challenging curriculum which focuses on themselves as individuals, developing their character and helping them realise the opportunities open to them in the wider world."
