Welcome to Future Schools Trust (FST), an education provider that runs New Line Learning and Cornwallis Academies, Tiger Primary School, Tiger Cubs Day Nursery and a large Sixth Form, in Maidstone, Kent.

FST was launched in 2007 when two former secondary schools merged together to become New Line Learning Academy, which then linked with Cornwallis Academy to form a new trust. In 2012, FST opened Tiger Primary School, which became the first primary in Kent to open under the Government’s Free School initiative.


Future Schools Trust offers a range of superb facilities for hire at New Line Learning and Cornwallis Academies, in Maidstone, Kent. Both sites are equipped with modern IT resources and flexible spaces that will enhance any social or professional gathering.


At Future Schools Trust, we seek to build a community of excellence in the south east and this is reflected in our high standards and expectations of teachers, staff and students. 

By joining our team, you will have access to a wide range of benefits, including an outstanding CPD programme, one-to-one regular line management meetings, staff health initiatives, a competitive pension scheme and childcare vouchers, as well as on-site childcare facilities.
