Joining as an associate member 

At Uttoxeter Learning Trust, we may offer an Associate Membership scheme, which allows interested schools to gain experience of the benefits of membership before committing to a full legal transfer.

In effect you will experience what it’s like to be a full member, but on a temporary basis so that you can ensure our Trust is a good fit.

Download our Associate Membership Leaflet, where you can read about how The Richard Clarke First School fully joined the Trust through Associate Membership.
