Three more East Riding schools have joined the flourishing Ebor Academy Trust.
Easington Church of England Primary Academy, Patrington Church of England Primary Academy and Marfleet Primary School joined on 1 October, to bring the total number of schools in the trust to 14. At least six other schools are queuing up to join Ebor.
The latest three join Sigglesthorne Church of England Primary Academy, Alderman Cogan’s Church of England Primary Academy and Sproatley Endowed Church of England Academy in Ebor’s East Riding and The Humber hub.
Ebor’s Chief Executive, Richard Ludlow, said: “We welcome these schools and look forward to working alongside them. We are a collaborative trust, sharing best practice to ensure the best outcomes for the children in our care and providing developmental opportunities for staff.
“We consist of small village schools, large urban schools, schools in challenging circumstances and those which have capacity to support others. We celebrate the uniqueness of each individual setting and share skills and resources, where appropriate, across our group. The Ebor Academy Trust is a family of schools who have a sense of responsibility for each other, building caring, strong professional relationships.”
Ebor is the trust behind the Creative Arts Academy, York’s first free school, which was announced last year and is awaiting confirmation of a site.
There are other schools operated by Ebor in York, Selby and on the Yorkshire Coast.
