As a multi-academy trust we are able to have the buying power to attract a large pool of specialists who work in the field of special educational needs.  Not only are we able to have these specialists be keynote speakers at our yearly conferences, but we are also able to offer their support to schools and academies throughout the North East, should your needs demand. They are practising professionals who have a vast range of experience in the field of SEN. Many are involved in current educational research through Higher Education establishments.

Ascent Academies’ trust is also a strategic partner within the Sunderland Teaching School alliance.
