About the Trust

The Amethyst Academies Trust (AAT) was born out of the success of Aldersley High School, a community school of 800 students which has achieved outstanding progress for the past 2 years.

We relish the opportunity to be part of the much needed regeneration of all areas we work in and wish to play a full role in the wider community.
