The Spenborough Co-operative Trust
On 1st August 2012 Littletown J I & N School became a foundation school and simultaneously acquired a charitable trust, The Spenborough Co-operative Trust.
We are proud of the success and achievements of our school. We wish to make it even better and believe that we would have a greater capacity to do so by working more collaboratively with partners. The Trust will enable the school to benefit from the skills of our partners to deliver enhanced learning in the classroom. By acquiring a mutual co-operative trust, supported by a range of partners and stakeholders who are united behind our vision, we hope to not only transform the life chances of every student that passes through our school, but to have a lasting positive impact on the wider community as well. We aim to provide the best education for all students in our area by working together to provide a personalised education for all, as well as promoting community cohesion.
Trust schools are a new kind of school – part of the local authority system, but supported by a charitable trust which will appoint some of the Governors. The Governing Body will continue to run the school and be responsible for its performance. It is not proposed to change staffing arrangements.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.

In 2016 the Trust Schools got together and recorded the Trust song 'All Different, All Equal, All Unique'. The children had a wonderful experience spending the morning in a recording studio at Huddersfield University. Click on the song title to listen to the recording.
