Staffordshire University Academies Trust is a National Multi Academy Trust comprised of a family of twenty church and non-church, primary and secondary academies, based in Staffordshire. Our Trust’s aspirations are reflected in the culture and ethos of the academies, in the way in which our communities are built upon sensitivity, tolerance and the appreciation of difference; at the heart of our work is the education of the young people in our care. There is a whole Trust ethos based on Rights, Respect and Responsibility. 


We are committed to providing a stimulating, varied and broad education. Our academies offer a wide range of extra activities as well as aspiring to good and outstanding academic standards. We want our pupils to be genuinely involved in the life of our academies, participating in decisions, interested in their learning and valuing the opportunities they have had. We are proud of their achievements, the quality of our teaching and the pastoral care we provide. We want our young people to leave our academies with ambition, an appetite for learning and the confidence to encounter the challenges and changes that will inevitably face them.


Our mission is to enable our children, young people and their families to report that Staffordshire is a great place to live, play, learn and achieve in; a place where they feel safe and can lead healthy lives and a place that offers them a successful future.


The CEO will build on SUAT’s significant achievements and legacy, taking forward the Vision, Values and Ethos that make SUAT the exceptional MAT it is today. The successful candidate will provide inspirational, strategic, and professional leadership, both internally and externally, which will ensure the continuing development and success of SUAT, and its academies, as places of transformational learning, with a reputation for high standards across all aspects of its work.


This is a very special role and we are looking for the right person to take forward the SUAT Vision and Values, building on the great work that has been done to date across our Trust.
