Welcome to Alpha Academies Trust

The Alpha 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 Alpha Academies Trust 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

British Library Visit: London

On 09/03/2018

We are delighted that The Discovery Academy has been offered tickets to attend one of the Education Workshops at the British Library in London on Friday 9th March 2018. This visit is for students in our Year 7 and Communication classes and is aimed at increasing students’ confidence in using language creatively.

They will be encouraged to use their knowledge of nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs to collect and then experiment with words inspired by the fascinating printed books, letters, diaries and manuscripts in the Treasures Gallery. There will also be time for us to explore the rest of the British Library with their Treasure Trail and, if time allows on the return trip, we will include a short sightseeing tour of some popular sights in London.
