The Astrea Promise

The Astrea Promise

The Astrea Promise is a strategic commitment to ensuring that the pupils in our primary academies have equity in the performance related opportunities afforded to them.  It is what we do to make sure that each of our 5000+ primary pupils will discover their personal passions, grow their individual talents and connect with the activities that will bring them enjoyment and fulfilment into their adult lives.

It is:

  • How we ensure our pupils are given an excellent grounding in the curriculum areas of PE, Music and Performing Arts.
  • How our pupils get the chance to be taken beyond the curriculum and into the rich and diverse life experiences provided by sport, musicianship and the performing arts.
  • How we identify, provide for and nurture those individuals who show incredible raw talent, setting them up for success at the highest levels.


At regional and national levels, we partner with individuals and groups who are committed to ensuring equal opportunities for young people, no matter their background.  For those young people with incredible raw talent, we work together under the premise that “if equality is the end goal, equity is the means to get there” – by which we mean that we work with our partners to ensure that individuals gain the tailored support they need to enter elite pathways.
