Academies Trust

Staffordshire University Academies Trust (SUAT) is a family of schools, which comprises of fourteen academies with one Trust Board and a Local Academy Council (Local Governing Body) in each academy.  SUAT promotes high aspirations and excellence for all. Our aim is to develop a strong partnership between the academies, pupils, and the wider community in order to secure an outstanding learning experience for everyone.  We have high expectations and strive to create independent learners fit for the demands of the 21st Century.

SUAT has set itself three core objectives:

  • To support academies in Staffordshire, across all tiers, in their journey to sustained outstanding performance through partnership, support and collaboration
  • Develop, support and train staff so that they can be inspirational leaders, outstanding teachers and excellent supporters of student learning
  • Lead a sustainable future for our academies so that outstanding performance can be secured for future generations of students




About the Sponsor


Staffordshire University has a long and proud history of providing high quality, progressive and inclusive Higher Education for people from across Staffordshire, the region, the UK and the rest of the world.  It is passionate about transforming the lives and aspirations of the individuals and communities it serves.  With over 20,000 students and an annual turnover in excess of £120m, Staffordshire University leads the sector on access, partnerships and flexible provision.  It also has a significant international presence. 

Building upon their expertise and excellence in educational practice, research and consultancy, the university is a major provider of educational opportunities for children, young adults and mature learners.

Through their highly regarded Education Department, they work in partnership locally, nationally and internationally in the development, brokerage and application of learning and learning policy related knowledge. They work in this area in order to explicitly improve the quality of learning for children, young people and adults.


About The Trust

SUAT is a growing Multi-Academy Trust with an eclectic, cross-phase family of academies with the common aim of continuous school improvement through challenge, collaboration and support.

We have a strong reputation for working in partnership with schools, and we believe that this work liberates, energises and develops teachers and schools to improve teaching and improve all educational outcomes for children and young people.

When you look around at the academy landscape you could easily form a view that one size fits all. Our belief is that our partnership should be bespoke. We are all different and therefore our needs are unique within a unique context.

The partnership aims to deliver these objectives through a combination of core values and vision, common approaches, MAT-wide structures and systems, shared staff development and practice, standard quality assurance processes and integrated leadership.



We recognise that each of our academies, and their communities, has something unique to share as well as having individual needs that other schools in the Trust can support. Whilst the Board of SUAT is legally responsible for each academy, we believe that by nurturing a culture of individual identity, each academy will reflect its own diversity and uniqueness. We recognise the vital importance of autonomy.  Every academy has its own context and challenges.  This is why we encourage our member academies to lead and manage in a way that preserves their individual identity and responds to the specific needs of their children and community.


About the Trust

Our vision is to achieve better outcomes for all of our young people by:

  • raising standards of achievement by focussing on the core business of learning and teaching
  • delivering a skills based curriculum that is tailored to individual learning needs
  • promoting the spiritual, moral, social, emotional and cultural development of every learner
  • working together to maximise the power of mutual collaboration and support
  • sharing resources, staff, areas of expertise and facilities to achieve economies of scale
  • developing highly effective leadership at all levels and seeking to pool strategic capacity

At the same time our aim is to realise the values upon which SUAT is founded. In order to do this, we will:

  • be non-selective and operate a truly comprehensive admissions system
  • build our partnership on mutual respect and trust
  • encourage a climate of openness and honesty
  • seek to engage effectively and inclusively with our local communities
  • welcome and support innovation
  • have high expectations of all young people and one another
  • recognise that effective partnership working is the responsibility of all to sustain and nurture and is not reliant upon individuals
  • seek to recognise the distinctive ethos and celebrate the traditions of all of the Academies in the MAT
