Our History

In 2015, Nonsuch High School for Girls formed a multi-academy trust with Wallington High School for Girls, the Nonsuch & Wallington Education Trust. In 2018, the company changed its name to Girls’ Learning Trust (GLT) and later that year Carshalton High School for Girls joined the MAT.

Our schools are respected for their high standards. They have in common a desire to develop all aspects of the individual, pursuing excellence both inside and outside the classroom. They also know that they have an important role to play in improving social mobility in the opportunities they can provide for their students.

The Trust benefits from the expertise within an executive support staff team that provides shared services for schools, including Finance, Estates, IT, Procurement, Capital Development Projects, HR, Governance, Audit and Risk. This core team of professionals ensure consistent methods of operation, strong quality assurance and best value across the Trust.

Relationships in the Trust, between staff and students or between colleagues, are built on mutual trust and respect. These relationships drive school improvement and contribute to the wellbeing of everyone. Visitors often comment on the high levels of motivation and positive behaviour of the students, the commitment and professionalism of the staff and the well-equipped school buildings.

Strong academic performance is complemented by highly effective pastoral care. We believe in offering a broad experience that goes well beyond the academic and girls are encouraged to develop their confidence, independence and resilience across a wide range of enrichment and extracurricular activities.
