Welcome from our Chief Executive Officer

Thank you so much for taking time to visit our website. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Bolton Impact Trust. We are a Multi-Academy Trust of four separate AP and Special (SEMH) academies where we work with children and young people who may be at a time in their lives where they require specific support. This is often when they are encountering personal crisis, when they require support with their behaviour or when they aren’t medically well enough to attend mainstream school.

We are extremely proud of the breadth of our curriculum and we feel that we are in a strong position to design and ultimately deliver provision for children and young people, whatever their specific needs. 

We think that our Trust is a very special place where we respect individuality, diversity and difference. We believe in positive regard for all and we actively promote the key principles of warmth, respect and harmony. 

Every child who joins us is afforded a fresh start and every adult who joins our team is given the opportunity to contribute. Visitors are always welcome and partnerships are extremely important to us. We work with colleagues locally, regionally and nationally and we love sharing best and next practice with our network partners. 


We are a Trust who are proud of our core beliefs and values:

We believe everyone can achieve.

We inspire a love of learning

We transform potential into long-lasting success.


I am proud to celebrate the fact that our Academies have been judged outstanding by Ofsted on eight separate occasions. I believe that this is testament to the outstanding skills, knowledge, professionalism and commitment of my staff team. Despite our successes, we are always striving for improvement.


Please feel free to get in touch if you wish to arrange a call or a visit or if you simply wish to learn more about us.


Best wishes  


Paul Hodgkinson
Chief Executive Officer
