Our Academies

Cloughwood Academy

Kaleidoscope Learning Trust (KLT) has been created by the Board of a high performing,‘Outstanding’ Academy, Cloughwood, in Cheshire West. Cloughwood Academy has achieved seven Outstanding judgements for Education and Care and Boarding in recent years and has enjoyed working in collaboration with other establishments, both mainstream and special, to improve outcomes for children. The impact of this work leads the Board to seek to join together cross-phase, multi disciplinary specialist schools and academies so that as many children as possible benefit from the depth of expertise that a MAT can offer. Cloughwood Academy is the first academy to join KLT and is looking forward to working with other partners to realise the Trust’s goal.
