Multi Academy Trust

SWECET TRADING LIMITED, C/O William Edwards School, Stifford Clays Road, Grays, RM16 3NJ

William Edwards School is the founding school of the South West Essex Community Education Trust (SWECET).

SWECET was formed  in 2015 when a group of like-minded schools came together to set up the Multi-Academy Trust.  We were united in the belief that every young person needs and deserves an education that will maximise their future life chances and that this could be better achieved together.

These schools and the schools that have joined since are all united by our shared values and beliefs, but this is where the similarities end. We encourage each other to remain unique places of learning. We believe our schools’ differences are an asset, allowing for creative thinking and sharing of best practice, raising standards across the Trust and providing exciting opportunities for our pupils.
