"Be kind, try hard, do your best."

Palladian Academy Trust (PAT)

On the 1st September 2016 St Martin’s Garden Primary converted to an Academy and became part of the 'Palladian Academy Trust' (PAT) collaborating with Ralph Allen, Combe Down Primary School, Widcombe Infant School, Widcombe Junior School, St Phillip's Primary School, Oldfield Park Infant School and Oldfield Park Junior School to enhance educational standards in the local area and improve the quality of teaching and learning. Being a member of the PAT and working in partnership with Ralph Allen and the other local primary schools above will bring a number of key benefits for our children and school including:

  • Shared teaching and learning expertise across schools
  • Opportunities to access specialist facilities and teaching in areas such as science, technology and sport
  • Improved transition for Year 6 pupils
  • Opportunities for effective staff professional development
  • Creation of economies of scale to save money and pool resources
  • Support in procuring services that are no longer being provided by the Local Authority
