Ebor Academy Trust is based in York and led by outstanding teachers with a proven track record of excellence locally and across Yorkshire.
We are a forward-looking multi-academy trust and we are making good progress with our plans to establish a series of school hubs in York, Selby, the East Riding and on the Yorkshire Coast. We may consider hubs in other areas, too, but it is important to us that all our schools are within reasonable reach.
Each hub will ultimately comprise around 2,000 pupils, made up of around eight to ten schools. We feel this is the correct number to be effective and to ensure appropriate collaboration between the schools: not too big to be impersonal and not too small so as to not be viable.
We want to reassure good schools who are considering joining us that their character and identity, and their place in their local communities, will be maintained. We would help schools to develop through collaboration and through use of our academy specialists, in subjects such as music, speech and language and mental health and wellbeing, and we would only really step in if we felt high standards were not being met. Schools would also benefit from our corporate services team set up to fully support teaching and learning.
We want to develop a true partnership of equals, mutually supportive and learning from each other for the benefit of our pupils. Together we can deliver a unique learning opportunity, where the talents and skills of children and young people are identified, developed and celebrated.
If you would like to explore the possibility of joining us, or need more information, email us with your details and we will be in touch.
‘In a day and age where the only constant in education is change, I find working within Ebor means I am constantly challenged and exposed to new ways of working, cutting-edge practice and different systems and styles. This is not a one-size-fits-all model. Working across a number of schools allows you to always reflect and feel inspired by the different settings, spreading best practice from within.
Having worked for a local authority where you don’t always feel like you can make an impact because of its size, the beauty of this small, but rapidly-evolving academy group, is that your views, voice and skills do matter and wherever you sit in the structure you have a very real chance to effect change on a child’s life. Job satisfaction doesn’t come much greater than that!’
