Middleton is a part of the Nottingham Schools Trust. In 2017 a group of Nottingham schools joined forces to form the Trust - a collaborative partnership focusing on improving education for the children of Nottingham. NST has a priority to provide sustainable school-to-school support to all of the member schools within the Trust, and to take full advantage of the breadth and expertise that already exists within member schools. NST's guiding principles are to challenge, support and improve member schools and academies to ensure that all children succeed. Middleton has a voice in the decision-making process, through the Trust's open and transparent governance. Moreover, the Trust values the diversity which exists in our schools and actively encourages each school joining the Trust to maintain and further develop its own distinctive culture and identity.
