On 1st November 2010, John Taylor High School became the first “converter” academy in Staffordshire. We are proud that our trustees are all drawn from our community and from our governing body, and we look to implement the strategic plan devised by the Senior Leadership Team and trustees in 2011. All of our work is underpinned by our vision and values and, as such, we deem our aims as follows:
To provide an excellent broad and balanced curriculum for all learners that ensures each individual reaches stretching personal goals and fulfils their potential.
To be an educational ‘centre of excellence’ providing services and expertise to other educational establishments.
To be a fully integrated ‘community’ hub for residents in the local towns and villages.
To be a desired employer.
To provide all of the above whilst operating in from a robust financial position. This means being open to making profit where possible and reasonable without losing the core ethics of providing free education to all 11 – 19 year olds as defined by our admissions criteria.
