The Stranton Academy Trust was set up in 2013 as a non-profit making charity to initially sponsor academies in Hartlepool. The Sponsors, Stranton Primary School, are an OFSTED rated Outstanding School (July 2012) and a National Support School with years of experience of working alongside and supporting Schools in the Primary sector.
The Trust first sponsored Owton Manor Primary School (now Eskdale Academy) which with the amazing hard work from staff and pupils progressed rapidly from a failing School into a twice recently rated 'Good' School with OFSTED - as well as recording best ever levels of achievement in all Key Stages.
On October 1st 2016, Jesmond Gardens Primary School became the third member of the Trust.
All academies within the Stranton Academy Trust now work collaboratively to deliver excellent practice across our Schools and to Schools in a number of local authorities.
The Trust has an ever-growing support infra-structure - offering the very best educational, financial, and ICT support to Schools within the Trust and wider-educational network.
Our Academies will aim to continue to deliver excellent educational provision for all pupils and ensure we form a major part of the communities in which we serve.
