Alpha Academies Trust

Alpha Academies Trust has been established to create a network of schools in North Staffordshire that provide excellent academic tuition and outstanding vocational experience for young people.  Our focus is on inspiring students to achieve, providing them with skills for the modern workplace, and, working closely with employers, to create innovative learning partnerships.

Alpha Academies Trust is sponsored by Stoke on Trent College and works in partnership with a number of outstanding schools and academies, as well as regional education expert advisors.  We draw extensively on the experience and knowledge of our sponsor as well as our network of the region’s largest employers to devise our curricula and ethos.


Our Message

We offer “a real education”. We want every one of our pupils to have high levels of literacy and numeracy at all ages and stages and be ready for employment, further and higher education when they leave our secondary schools.

We are building pathways for children from primary age through to post 16 and beyond to higher education, apprenticeships, employment and adulthood. We work with families and communities to raise aspirations.
