Together Everyone Achieves More








Mrs Katrina Ware
Executive Principal

Welcome to Timu Academy Trust

We converted both Bobbing Village School and Iwade School into academies in June 2014 and formed the multi academy trust.

Timu means “team” in Swahili, a word which represents how we work at all levels within and across the schools.

Within the trust, we recognise everyone as an individual and we nurture, value and develop them.  We aim to achieve the highest standards in all that we do and to have happy children and staff, eager and excited to come to school.

We work in collaboration with other schools and organisations seeking the best innovative practice in teaching, sharing new ideas and learning from others.  We use research as a springboard for change.

We strive to make our schools even better, recruiting the very best to meet the needs of a changing world.  We foster a positive attitude which allows everyone to develop new skills, build resilience and achieve their dreams.

Our aim is for all Timu children to become:

  • Successful lifelong learners
  • Happy, healthy and confident individuals
  • Responsible citizens
  • Resilient, ready to adapt and contribute in a changing world
