About The YES Trust
Youth Engagement Schools Trust has been created with the core purpose of transforming the lives of vulnerable learners, to help them become a success in today’s modern world. We achieve this through collaboration of all stakeholders as we all strive to improve the knowledge and achievement of all our learners.

Our highly trained, committed staff are determined to secure excellence for all our pupils, and strive to provide world class education and support to those who have previously failed in education; we are able to achieve this by continuously striving for the best; improving, innovating and reflecting.

The Trust is committed to equality and opportunity for all, and making sure every individual has a tailored approach to education that allows them to build on their strengths and develop their weaknesses. We are committed to providing child centred education, by developing authentic relationships, and being adaptive & sensitive to each pupil’s individual needs.
