We place a great deal of emphasis on enabling all staff to reach their full potential.  There are plenty of opportunities for staff across the multi-academy group of schools to develop skills and take part in CPD.  Set in the heart of Staffordshire, we are easily accessible from the motorway and the train station with a bus stop just outside the front gate.
