Dudley Academies Trust

Dudley Academies Trust brings together four Dudley schools under the sponsorship of Dudley College of Technology to form a new Multi Academy Trust. The schools are: St James Academy (Castle High School), The Link Academy (Hillcrest School and Community College), Pegasus Academy (Holly Hall Academy) and Beacon Hill Academy (High Arcal School).

We believe that Dudley Academies Trust is absolutely the best way forward for our students, parents and staff as we will share expertise, resources and management so that we can:

  • Build on areas of strength to improve outcomes for all pupils
  • Accelerate pupil attainment
  • Increase the levels of outstanding teaching in all schools
  • Raise pupil confidence, develop their future career aspirations and increase their knowledge of career options
  • Ensure all pupils, irrespective of their differing abilities, achieve their maximum potential – supporting those with learning difficulties.

The Trust has a strong emphasis on providing the very best educational experience for pupils so they can experience both academic and personal success.

As a parent you can be sure we will make every effort to develop your child’s ambitions and aspirations so they can best prepare for their future career choices and fulfilling adult lives.
