    The Astrea Academy Trust logo also communicates the importance we place on collaboration, development and aspiration: The three figures coming together in the shape of a tree, which represents growth, whilst the tallest figure reaches upwards, towards a star, which is above and beyond the highest branch of the tree.

    This is a hugely exciting time for our family of schools. Astrea has been recognised by the Department for Education as being well placed to raise standards and achieve excellence for pupils in a growing number of schools nationwide. We are presented with a rare opportunity to make a real difference to the lives and life chances of school children – many of whom haven’t previously received the educational opportunities they deserve.

    To tackle this inequality, a Northern Sponsor fund, amounting to £10 million, was created in order to attract and encourage the best sponsors to take on schools in the north of England. Astrea Academy Trust is one of the first to receive a share of this fund and has been trusted with setting up high-performing academy hubs in areas with some of the greatest need.

    The Astrea vision enables individual academies to flourish with real autonomy, whilst also ensuring a strong ethos of support and collaboration across our schools. This balance is necessary in order to achieve long term sustainability for our schools.
