Equitas Academies Trust was formed in September 2012 and incorporates Aston Manor Academy (Secondary) and Chilwell Croft Academy (Primary). Both Academies are happy, exciting, and inspiring learning environments for their children who are from a vibrant mix of cultures.

Aston Manor Academy serves a culturally diverse and economically disadvantaged catchment area yet year on year produces excellent results for its very deserving students. We firmly believe that one of the key hallmarks of Aston Manor Academy is the positive, friendly, and supportive ethos that enables all of our students to make progress, both academically and in their personal development. Aston Manor’s school ethos is ‘All Different, All Equal, All Achieving’. In our last Ofsted inspection (June 2017) we were judged to be Outstanding in all areas. In addition, our Sixth Form is rated best for progress in Birmingham!

Applications are welcome from both experienced and newly qualified teachers.
