Ebor Academy Trust is predominantly a primary school based multi-academy trust operating from four geographical hubs in York, Selby, on the Yorkshire Coast, and in the East Riding and The Humber. Ebor is led by outstanding executive headteachers with a proven track record of excellence in education.
Each of our hubs 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: not too big to be impersonal and not too small so as to not be financially viable. There is no lead school and all our schools work together for the benefit of our children. We like to think of ourselves as a family of schools, all looking out for each other, and there are regular occasions when school leaders meet to shape Ebor’s continually evolving vision.
Schools considering joining us should know that their character and identity will be maintained should you opt to join Ebor and we are with you every step of the way if you choose to convert. Collaboration is key and we help schools continually improve, partly through use of our academy specialists and would only really step in if we felt high standards were not being met. Schools in Ebor also benefit from working with our central services team established to fully support teaching and learning.
It is our ambition to develop a true partnership of equals, mutually supportive and learning from each other. Together we can deliver very special learning opportunities, 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!’
