About Us

In September 2013 the PCLC was officially formed as a Multi Academy Trust and consisted of three schools, Passmores Academy (Sponsor), Potter Street Academy and Purford Green Primary School. Then in September 2018 the Downs Primary School and Nursery joined the PCLC.

PCLC is a cooperative Trust, meaning that we adhere to the ten key principles of the cooperative movement, while retaining overall autonomy of our schools. In practice this means that everything about our school, from its physical construction, to its systems of management, is designed to accord with these principles:






Caring for Others




Social Responsibility

We view ourselves as servants of our community and are zealous in our aim to make sure that every student who attends a school with the trust has an enjoyable and challenging educational journey and leaves with the skills, personal qualities and qualifications that allow them to take the next steps towards their ambitions. We firmly believe that financial difficulties should never be a barrier to learning and have a long-established school charity, No Child Without, that helps support students to have the full range of opportunities,
