CORE Education Trust is a values-driven multi-academy trust rich in cultural and social diversity.

Responsible for four leading academies in Birmingham – Arena, City, Jewellery Quarter, and Rockwood – the Trust was created in 2014 based around four cornerstone values: Collaboration, Opportunity, Respect and Excellence.

These values drive every aspect of our commitment to the staff, students and families we serve; we believe in the power of education to inspire, to enable, and to enrich every life, and are motivated and inspired by the success of our students.

Led by Adrian Packer CBE, our executive leadership and management team lead our Trust education faculty, as well as oversee policy and administration. The team’s diverse range of skills and backgrounds represents many years of cross-sector experience. Together, they drive the CORE vision and maintain strong links with all our valued stakeholders.
