Our Story, Mission and Values

Ironstone STORY 

Ironstone Academy Trust takes its name from the proud history made by the people of Middlesbrough and the stunning environment we live in. 

In the last century, the industrial powerhouse of ‘Ironopolis’ transformed the world, setting the standards for quality steel and iron production around the world. We are working hard to ensure the young people of the current ‘Ironopolis’ will go on to transform their world, be it building bridges like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, or being sporting heroes like Clough or Mannion.   

Ironstone VISION 

Ironstone is a strong Multi Academy Trust.  All academies in the Trust work and learn together.  The Trust puts the need of pupils at the heart of its decision making.  We challenge our academies and our staff to enact our values, delivering consistency, efficiency, and effectiveness. 

Our pupils will be confident, knowledgeable, and ready to take on the challenges that life brings. 

Ironstone VALUES 

We value our pupils and employees. We work to ensure our academies are great places to be a pupil, and special places to work.  

‘As a Trust we host an annual celebration of our pupils’ achievements at our Ironstone Awards evening. Trustees present awards to children nominated from the 6 schools for categories including contribution to school and wider community, Sportsmanship, overcoming adversity and a special trustees award’
