Kaleidoscope Learning Trust (KLT)

Kaleidoscope Learning Trust (KLT) strives to be a child-centred, inclusive, purposeful, innovative and multi-disciplinary educational community which delivers outstanding learning experiences and life opportunities for every child. Each of our Academies will ensure that its learners receive the best possible start in life to enable them to reach their potential, thrive in the world and lead fulfilled, independent lives.

Each of our Academies will have its own unique features. However, together, we will promote excellence, innovation, respect and tolerance for all. We will celebrate together the progress, achievements and successes of the whole learning community.

Joining KLT

We are always very happy to hear from those who wish to join the Kaleidoscope Learning family or simply learn a little more about us and what we do.

However the decision to take on any new Academies is taken on a case by case basis and always based on robust due diligence, from both sides.

If you would like to arrange a conversation with a member of our Board to learn more about Kaleidoscope Learning Trust or becoming part of a multi-academy trust, please contact, Dr John Swaffield, Chair of Trustees at: jsw@theklt.com

Message from the Principal

At Cloughwood we pride ourselves on being an outward facing, forward-thinking, inclusive community. Our staff work tirelessly to improve our provision and to ensure that your son makes the best possible progress and achieves the best outcomes both in their learning and in their professional development.

We have more pupils attending the Academy now than ever before and the needs of our pupils are wider than ever, often very complex in nature. To address this our staff dedicate themselves to broadening their skills and knowledge and we adapt and improve the environment as best we can to meet those needs.
