Y11 Prom - 28th June

Due to the vast number of vehicles expected to arrive at the Moat House for the upcoming prom, parents have been asked to please use the events field to park their vehicles during the children’s arrival.

Directional signs will be located on Lower Penkridge Road guiding the parents to this car park.  This is easily accessible off the main car park via a set of stairs.  Please see the satellite photo

It is hoped that by minimising the number of cars trying to enter the main driveway, the children will be able to experience a much smoother arrival in their vehicles.

Many thanks.

Y9 Pathways and parents Evening Tuesday 16th May 2017

At Staffordshire University Academy we believe our students should be fully informed before making the decisions that have a very important effect on their career pathway.  The right choice of courses in Year 10 will help to secure their passport to a successful future. Letters have been sent home with students today, however please refer to the "letters sent home" section of the website if you have not received yours.  We look forward to seeing parents/carers and students at the event on Tuesday 16th May 4pm - 7pm.
