Message from the CEO

Established in 2011, STEP began its journey with the founder primary school, Gonville Academy. The Mission of our Trust, to improve the life chances of all children, where we have the capacity to make a difference, we are morally bound to so, is what binds the Trust together as one - STEP First.
Our unique way of operating as one organisation across multiple sites allows an agreed level of consistency, STEP Way, and support, STEP Up, which enables all children to access the highest level of education.
As part of our commitment to equality, we champion respect and inclusivity in our academies. The well-being of our pupils, staff and stakeholders is important to us and we aim to provide a happy, safe and secure environment across our communities.
The Trust has a strong focus on developing its leaders and staff, STEP Ahead, by significantly investing in their own professional development, preparing the pupils and Trust for the next stage of their journey. High expectations of standards in all areas of academy life are articulated through the STEP Standards.
Appointed as Head Teacher of Applegarth Academy in 2011 and Deputy CEO in 2015, I have been honoured to serve the pupils and communities across South London and East Sussex. My commitment to: ‘striving together for excellence in partnership’ is unwavering and I am excited to continue to work with all stakeholders through the next stage of our development in my role as CEO.
Thank you for showing an interest in STEP Academy Trust by visiting our website. We hope you find all the information you require; however, please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to arrange a visit to one of our academies.

STEP Compass

As the name suggests, the STEP Compass guides our academy communities, both individually and collectively.
By ensuring clarity of direction across our organisation, all stakeholders understand how their contributions further the Mission and Vision of STEP Academy Trust.
At the heart of our organisation are the Mission, Vision and Values - everything derives from them. The Compass is, in effect, our Trust's strategic development plan; although we know it as our story.
The STEP Compass helps us to know how to work together. It's about understanding and collaboration.

- Shaun, aged 10, Applegarth Academy
