We are supported by Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust.

The Trust, led by CEO Sir Mark Grundy, expects outstanding outcomes from all of its community. Regardless of background or ability level, the Trust believes that everyone should have access to exceptional education.  


Innovate, Inspire, Collaborate.

The Trust has three principal cornerstones: innovate, inspire and collaborate.

  • To be innovative staff must be leaders of learning, allowing students to aim higher.
  • Inspiration comes from all staff members seeing further, motivating pupils to change attitudes.
  • Collaboration is a product of staff promoting cohesion within the school community, so that students are concerned for all.   


The Trust’s partnerships, for example with Microsoft, Tute and Century, enable our students to have access to limitless possibilities and opportunities. As part of the Trust, our school has access to facilities and resources that allow our pupils to expand their horizons and further their aspirations.

The Trust supports its schools and does the ‘heavy-lifting’ to remove barriers and ensure there are no boundaries to our pupils’ learning.
