What is Equa

Our name Equa is based on the core belief in equity; every child has an equal right to access excellent education – Every Child, Every Chance.


Equa Multi Academy Trust is a group of good and outstanding schools, initially five primary and one secondary, providing excellence in education for children in rural Wiltshire, aged 2-19. Initially, like-minded schools came together in 2016, with a common goal of providing the best possible learning opportunities for children in Wiltshire market towns, and surrounding villages. Equa Multi Academy formally formed on 1 April 2019.

Our strength lies in our passion to make a difference on a daily basis to the lives of young people. Each of our schools has its own distinctive ethos and values, and we share core values and beliefs. Our primary schools are the foundation, and in every church school we cherish and embrace the Christian distinctiveness, ethos and unique nature of the schools, so all children in the trust flourish through a culture of nurture.

School improvement is at our heart, we are always seeking ways to improve through effective working partnerships, to raise aspiration by providing exciting opportunities and enhancing strong academic outcomes through a holistic approach.

We know that by working together, within a formal structure, we are able to create a sustainable educational partnership that can work to produce strong outcomes to increase social mobility for disadvantaged learners and provide positive pathways through school and beyond.
