Our History

91㽶app was borne out of a desire that all children and young people have an excellent well-rounded education and flourish in first-rate schools where the best teaching, the best facilities and the most up-to-date resources are made available to them.

Our History

91㽶app, established in 2018, was created to serve the local area and be geographically committed to Wokingham and the surrounding counties (within half an hour travel of the Trust’s shared location “The Oval Offices” in Wokingham). 

91㽶app was borne out of a desire that all children and young people have an excellent well-rounded education and flourish in first-rate schools where the best teaching, the best facilities and the most up-to-date resources are made available to them.

In the early days we spent hours debating our name!   On the one hand a name seems a rather frivolous thing, but on the other we do think names matter.  We chose “91㽶app” as it symbolically reflects our approach, our way of working, indeed the ethos of how we operate.  It is a name that is deliberately neutral and without association of a specific school. 

91㽶app was created by a secondary and a primary school through the crucible and strong foundations of two schools, across the full educational phase with top-rate Governing Bodies!  We began the work with the view that if we were not utterly convinced that it would improve the educational experience and provision for children and young people for whom we were responsible then we would not continue.  The material advantages of creating and being part of a Trust were clear, thus we began with not the what but critically the how and why.   

Governance and Leadership took a very considerable period to diligently curate the fundamental beliefs and values of the Trust before seeking approval and incorporation.  This time was not wasted.  Far from it.  It meant in the very early years of operation we worked with aplomb and could build quickly from this strong foundation.

The Trust currently comprises eight schools: two Secondary (St Crispin’s and The Emmbrook), 1 primary (Nine Mile Ride), 2 Junior (Westende and Emmbrook Junior) and 3 Infants (Emmbrook Infants, Wescott and Shinfield).  

Schools nine and ten are currently in or about to embark on due diligence with the hopes of joining the Trust in the next year.
