Trust Initiatives

As a Trust there are many ways our schools work together both day-to-day and on projects for the benefit of all schools within our Trust.  This allows our schools to share expertise for the benefit of our pupils and staff development.

Current Projects



Brass Roots

Staploe Education Trust and Soham Comrades Band were delighted to launch their new music project, “Brass Roots” in the final weekend of September. The vision of this collaborative project is to increase the number of young people playing a brass instrument both within the Trust’s schools and the local community.

Staploe Education Trust are eager to offer all students the opportunity to learn to play an instrument, brass and orchestral instruments generally. An aim of the project is to raise enough money to purchase instruments for a full year group in each primary school, and deliver whole-class brass instrument sessions as part of the music curriculum in our schools. The tuition is to be free of charge and accessible for all.

If you have an old brass instrument at home that is no longer played or needed then we would be incredibly grateful to receive it as part of this project.  Please do contact Gemma Perry, the Director of Music for Staploe Education Trust by emailing: if you think you can help in any way.
