  • EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS
    Vale of York has surpassed our expectations this year (and they were already high). We are glad that our daughter chose to attend a school with such a caring and personalised ethos.

    Parent | Year 8 Student
  • 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.

    Helen Dowds | Principal, Vale of York Academy
  • A PLACE TO THRIVE
    Hope Learning Trust, York presents opportunities and expectations that promote success. In a world of turmoil we are able to offer schools the opportunity to concentrate on teaching and learning, providing you with peace of mind as we look after everything else.
