Star Academies 

Star Academies is a mixed Multi-Academy Trust that runs a diverse network of primary and secondary schools. We are a values-based organisation, committed to enhancing social mobility. All our efforts are geared towards raising the aspirations of children and young people in areas of social and economic deprivation to improve their life chances and help them succeed at the highest levels of education, employment and the professions.

Star Academies is one of the country’s leading education providers, and our schools promote excellence in everything they do. In every school, the entire staff team – working in partnership with parents and the local community – is committed to nurturing today’s young people and inspiring tomorrow’s leaders.

Our schools work together as Star Partnerships in five cluster areas – Lancashire, Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire, the Midlands and London. Schools within the Partnerships collaborate to share expertise and maximise opportunities and experiences for our pupils.

Shine Charity

At Shine Charity, we aim to transform the life chances of children, young people and their families, particularly in areas of disadvantage and deprivation.

We do this by harnessing the collective power of schools and community youth groups to play a positive role in their local communities, with children, young people, staff and volunteers ‘going the extra mile’ to support those in need.

Through these partnerships, our mission is to:


INVEST IN YOUNG PEOPLE to support those experiencing disadvantage to achieve their potential


EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE to make a difference to their communities – local, national and international
