Welcome to The College Academies Trust

The College Academies Trust has been established to create a network of schools in North Staffordshire that provide excellent academic tuition and outstanding vocational experience for young people.  Our focus is on inspiring students to achieve, providing them with skills for the modern workplace, and, working closely with employers, to create innovative learning partnerships.

The College Academies Trust is sponsored by Stoke on Trent College and works in partnership with a number of outstanding schools and academies, as well as regional education expert advisors.  We draw extensively on the experience and knowledge of our sponsor as well as our network of the region’s largest employers to devise our curricula and ethos.

If you are interested in the work of the Trust and would like to support us in any way – maybe as an employer, or a member of staff or as a parent or pupil then please contact us

Franklin Scholars Awards Ceremony

On 29/06/2017

On Thursday 29th June 2017, Franklin Scholars will be hosting their annual Awards Ceremony at the Royal Over-Seas League, London and some of our students have been invited to attend this event.

We will leave the Academy in the morning travelling to Stoke Station, where we will board the train to London Euston. We will eat a celebratory meal in a local restaurant at noon before the Awards Ceremony takes place at the Royal Over-Seas League. Afterwards, we will make our way back to London Euston. Parents/carers should collect students from Stoke Station, not from the Academy.

Students attending should wear full Academy uniform. They may bring with them a small amount of money to spend but this will remain the student’s own responsibility.
