Working together, Astrea schools tackle head on the barriers that stand in the way of children’s success. We do this through a relentless commitment to a brilliant education, a focus on inclusion for all, and by delivering on our promise of opportunities that inspire beyond measure. This commitment includes enhanced careers provision to empower students to capitalise on further study, training and employment opportunities.

We see strong relationships with the local business community as key to achieving our aims. We are committed to finding new ways of working with business partners to both meet the needs of employers while giving our students new experiences and opportunities that will help them develop the skills and personal characteristics they need in future life. It is our ambition that employers will be integral to school life, inspiring Astrea children to make aspirational and informed decisions about their pathways after leaving education.

As part of our commitment we are developing the Astrea Business Club, an exciting collaboration of business and education. In its first year, the Business Club will be focussed on activity at Astrea Academy Dearne, which has recently been awarded the nationally recognised Quality Standard in Careers.

“We are a school that values partnership building, not just for our young people but so that we as an organisation can give back to companies that help them.  Become a partner in the Astrea Business Club and we can guarantee that your employer interactions with our young people will be structured, meaningful and that you’ll have the evidence to show the impact that your company makes in bringing education to life!”
