Amethyst Academies Trust was born out of the success of Aldersley High School, a community school of 800 students which has achieved outstanding progress for the past two years.
“We believe we have the capacity and the experience to inspire students and staff and bring about rapid and sustained improvement for the benefit of the LocalAuthority, and wider community,” said Nicola Davis, the Chief Executive Officer of Amethyst Academies Trust (AAT).
An experienced Executive Principal, Mrs Davis has led and supported a number of local schools including New Park School and Dunstall Hill Primary School and has been the Principal of Aldersley High School for the past eight years.
The Trust continues to build on its excellent relationship with various Teaching
Training providers across the West Midlands.
The recent addition of Moreton School to the ‘AAT Family’ means that a wider breath of courses are available to sixth form students and a huge investment in staff development including inspiring ‘Teach Meet’ events every term which are open to any member of the profession and, as Lisa Wood, the Executive Vice Principal, says: “They are so inspirational – you walk away with a wealth of practical ideas as well as having had the opportunity to truly reflect on the latest pedagogy and its actual impact on children in the classroom.”
The Trust continues to build on its excellent relationship with various Teaching Training providers across the West Midlands, being proud of the standard of guidance afforded all members of staff right across the Trust through a wide variety of bespoke in-house development programmes, built on research based
continuing professional development.
Future plans for the Trust include linking with the City Learning Quarter and hosting a DfE visit in the new term.
This all means opportunities for growth and future jobs.
It is the future that the Amethyst Academies Trust is working towards and their ambition to help students within their care become academically successful and also rounded employable individuals.
The Trust has invested in a curriculum which supports the spiritual and social development of students; encouraging whole school involvement in personal challenges which sees students adopting various causes locally and nationwide for whom they raise awareness and funds.
As a recognised awarding centre, students also participate in an extended Forest School programme in the lower school, before being given the opportunity
to develop their team building and endurance skills further through the Duke of Edinburgh scheme after the age of fourteen.
The Amethyst Trust Transformation Model of school improvement evolved from work which originally took place at Aldersley High School, enabling the school to move from the bottom 10% of schools in the country to the top 10% for outstanding progress.
