Join us in visioning a future of hope, innovation and unity.

How far we’ve come

Ӱapp (Ӱapp) was founded in 2014 to make our schools even better through working closely together. Fast forward 10 years later, Ӱapp has done just that and more, growing to serve almost 10,000 children and young people across Leicester and Leicestershire. While the Mead family has grown, one thing remains unchanged – our mission – together we make a positive difference. 

Strategic pillars

In our tenth year, we are looking forward to the future and how Ӱapp can make even more of a positive difference to Leicester and Leicestershire. We will achieve this through three strategic pillars:


Ӱapp will be a group of schools, where all adults and children are constantly learning and developing. We will work in collaboration as one entity to innovate, improve and maintain high educational standards. Ӱapp has a single legal and moral purpose – to advance education for the public benefit.


Ӱapp will play a vital role in our communities. Like a university we will make a strategic contribution to the greater social good. We will help communities develop a better understanding of education and its role in regeneration. Working with partner organisations, we will take a leading role to transform our communities.


Ӱapp is a leader within our wider education community and with that comes responsibility. We will make decisions about how we grow collectively and responsibly, so that no school – and no child – is left behind. We will grow by design, not organically and haphazardly.

Be part of our future

We and all the schools in Ӱapp are committed to making a meaningful impact. We believe that together we make a positive difference.
