Building Leadership and Character Together

Success Academy Trust is standards driven; it aims to provide world-class education and care that allows every young person to reach their potential in an environment where there is a commitment to work collaboratively and take ownership of each other’s successes; it recognises the importance of teaching and learning. It operates a robust school improvement system with the ultimate aim of doing something exceptional for young people in our area.
