Create Partnership Trust was established in Birmingham in September 2016. This is the next stage of the journey to excellence for its founding schools, Greet Primary and Conway Primary, which have been federated since 2009. A third school, Hodge Hill Primary, joined the Trust in January 2017 as the first sponsored school. The uniqueness of each school is respected and celebrated by the Trust but we also seek ways of working together in terms of both sharing best practice and problem-solving.
The fourth member of the MAT is Greet Teaching School which brings further school improvement resources.
