  • WORKING IN COLLABORATION
    The partnership with Hope Learning Trust and, importantly, with Manor Church of England Academy, is significant as it is unique to the schools in York. No other multi-academy trust exists as yet in this area that gives scope for two secondary schools to work in collaboration.

 our Governors 
and Trustees to ensure they are confident in their responsibilities and that the resources needed to fulfil these responsibilities are provided. Governors are volunteers and we are grateful for each person who gives tirelessly to the ongoing education of our young people.
