Whitehill Primary School & Nursery
Developing confidence, ambition and independence through the highest aspirations for all

The Decus Educational Trust

The Decus Educational Trust (formerly the Gravesend Grammar School Academies Trust) was incorporated in 2011 and expanded in 2014 with the addition of Whitehill Primary School.

The vision of the trust is to be a beacon of excellence in the community, where all students are enabled to reach their full potential, growing in knowledge and learning, and developing into confident, active and valued members of society.  We seek to achieve this through:

  • An outstanding teaching and learning experience for all students, with excellent facilities and an inclusive ethos of respect and responsibility.
  • Strong, courageous and decisive leadership which is consultative and inspirational, with high level strategic and communication skills, and the vision and passion to achieve the very best outcomes.
  • Financial stability that safeguards the future, facilitates creativity and seeks development opportunities that reflect our ethos and enrich the lives of our students and the wider community.

For students and parents, this means going to a school that particularly promotes:

  • Achievement
  • Strong leadership
  • Partnership
  • Inspiration
  • Respect and responsibility
  • Enrichment and Enjoyment
