Preparing our young people for the 21st century
Transforming our schools to promote critical and individual thinking

Our Vision

At The Stour Academy Trust, we recognise that our education system needs to quickly and more radically shift to close equity gaps and to better prepare our young people for the 21st century.  

We are transforming our schools from passive forms of learning focused on direct instruction and memorisation, by moving towards interactive methods that promote the critical and individual thinking needed in today’s innovation-driven economy.
