St Chad’s Academies Trust

Welcome to St Chad’s Multi Academy Trust, the Lichfield Diocesan MAT

As one of the largest Diocese in the country the Trust works in partnership with seven local authorities:

  • Shropshire
  • Staffordshire
  • Wolverhampton
  • Walsall
  • Sandwell
  • Stoke on Trent
  • Telford and Wrekin

Established in 2014 the Trust currently has thirteen academies within the family and continues to grow. Our success to date is founded on true collaboration and sharing good practice.

Our mission is to provide the best possible education for the children in our care. Principals, staff, local academy committees and Trustees work closely together; always looking to improve on past best. Whilst academic achievement is a priority, as church schools, our practice is rooted in our Christian foundation. Joining St Chad’s embraces the mission to nurture the whole child, encouraging them to flourish as a child of God; spiritually, morally, socially, culturally as well as academically.A good education must provide ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) and that is reflected in the rich and varied curriculum and opportunities we seek to provide in for the children in our care.

The Trust prides itself on collaboration, partnership, trust and a moral imperative to provide the best we can for our children and young people.

The four basic elements of wisdom, hope, community and dignity permeate the Trust’s vision for education.  Come follow Christ in the footsteps of St Chad
