The City Learning Trust is a partnership of schools with a mission to create a world class education system in Stoke-on-Trent for the communities it serves.

It is a family of schools sharing resources and expertise, united by values and placing children first in everything it does.

The City Learning Trust is governed by one Trust and one Board of Trustees for all of the Academies. The Board of Trustees are responsible for how each Academy is run.  However, many of these responsibilities are delegated back to the individual Local Governing Committee of each Academy.

  • The Academy closes to students at 12.30 pm on Friday 17th December and reopens on Wednesday 5th January 2022. Wishing all of our students and their families a lovely festive holiday.
