About Us

Welcome to the Viking Academy Trust

Founded in 2016, Viking is the first primary-only academy trust in Thanet. It comprises of three successful schools: Chilton Primary School, Ramsgate Arts Primary School and Upton Junior School.

Our 'One Childhood One Chance' philosophy resonates across all aspects of life in a Viking school.

School improvement is the top priority for the Viking Academy Trust.  We all work diligently to ensure the very highest standards are achieved by all our Viking children. This relentless focus upon best practice in teaching and learning means that all our schools achieve academic excellence.

We have a proven track record of working effectively with our schools.  The school improvement work of the MAT has been commended in all of our Ofsted inspections. 

Our Strategy

To deliver this vision, we need to ensure that we:

  • Build capacity for school improvement by investing in the professional growth and development of all our staff
  • Recruit and retain outstanding leaders and classroom practitioners
  • Recruit and retain a central services team of professionals
  • Develop a clear and sustainable model for growth
  • Develop a sustainable and flexible financial model
  • Have a clear rationale for future schools joining the MAT
