Our Schools

We currently have 10 schools and we aim to welcome new schools next year, reaching 15 schools by 2026. We are proud to work in partnership with our leaders to create a community of expertise across the Trust.

In Tilian we value the individuality of schools. We understand that schools need to serve their communities and because our school communities are diverse, our schools must also be diverse.
