Michelangelo famously said ‘The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.’  That’s the thinking behind the City Learning Trust.

Right now, the UK’s education system is in a state of change, moving to less central government involvement in favour of local control.  This provides a great opportunity to take the lead and create a system that our community deserves.

Our City Learning Trust students will need to be lifelong learners in order to adapt to a changing workplace.  Their working life will be longer than any generation before and some of the job opportunities that will become available to them haven’t even been thought of yet.

We need to prepare our students for a changing global, political, social and economic world.  By doing that we will enable them, their children and the community of Stoke-on-Trent to prosper.
