Schools across the Stephen Sutton Multi-Academy Trust work together for continuous improvement with imagination and ambition. We aim to be an outstandingly inclusive and successful network of schools, where all students thrive and excel.
The Stephen Sutton Multi-Academy Trust had a start date of 1 January 2017, with Chase Terrace Technology College as the single academy in the MAT. In terms of growth, by 2020 the Trust aims to grow in size to around five schools – a combination of primary and secondary schools, all in broadly the same locality.
Schools joining the Trust will bring their own distinctive strengths and areas where support may be needed. The Core Team, working with key staff in partner schools, will utilise the internal capacity of Trust staff, supplemented (as required) by external expertise to ensure continuous improvement and strong outcomes.
With a strong emphasis on relationships and effective communication, this very local MAT provides a powerful and authentic model of school improvement, through which schools can enjoy significant degrees of freedom, notwithstanding the broader aims of the Trust.
