Why be a teacher at The Stour Academy Trust?
We are developing a pedagogical model that is centred on student voice, choice and collaboration.
We intend to provide technology for all, to allow the delivery of the personalised and self-paced learning that is required for a 21st century education system.

We are giving our teachers and children the digital tools to create a level playing field for all children, irrespective of their language skills, reading ability or any other factors that may present learning challenges.
