Law Family Educational Trust
Inspiring aspiration and drive in all students
The Law Family Educational Trust (LFET) is a Charitable Trust established by Andrew Law to support the Laurus Trust, a Multi Academy Trust (MAT), headquartered in Cheadle Hulme, near Manchester. Andrew attended Cheadle Hulme High School and graduated from Sheffield University in 1987. He is chairman of Speakers for Schools, deputy chairman of the New School Network, and a member of the Sutton Trust strategic advisory development board.
The aim of LFET is to help raise all-round educational attainment levels and eventually serve as a template for state school co-curricular activities nationwide. The LFET approach is entrenched in the belief that personal development and aspiration are promoted by participation in a whole range of activities. LFET believe that all students have the potential to fulfil their ambitions whether they be academic, musical, sporting or creative. By developing activities for which students have a particular interest they will become better motivated, more respected by their peers, more fully engaged in education, more likely to recognise their potential and more able to make a difference in the world.
LFET aims to support the Laurus Trust’s Cornerstones programme which promotes the four areas of Academic Aspiration: Leadership and Service, Competition and Physical Endeavour, Culture, Creativity and Rhetoric. To help design and deliver this programme, LFET enlists the expertise of key consultants. Patsy Rodenburg OBE, a British voice coach, author and theatre director, continues to develop the Cicero Programme, bespoke to LFET to raise individual student social and professional skills through practical engagement across the entire educational curriculum.
Sporting programmes continue to facilitate the delivery of a high level LFET programme of engagement to raise standards of achievement, confidence building and participation across all abilities.
