A Learning Trust.


The Talentum Learning Trust is based in Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands and was formed in April 2016 upon the conversion to academy status of three schools to form the Multi-Academy Trust:

  • Churnet View Middle School;
  • Leek High School; and
  • Westwood College.

In September 1981, schools in Leek were re-organised into the current three-tier system:

  • First Schools (5-9 years)
  • Middle Schools (9-13 years)
  • Upper Schools (13-19 years)

Leek is a pleasant market and former textile town with a population of about 20,000 people, between Stoke on Trent, Buxton and Macclesfield. It is on the fringe of the Peak District National Park, in the County of Staffordshire.
