With its headquarters in York, Ebor Academy Trust is a teacher-led multi-academy trust – a family of schools with a sense of responsibility for each other.
Ours is a mixed trust comprising both Community and Church schools. We have strong links with York St John University, work closely with the Diocese of York and have established many successful and innovative partnerships with organisations sharing common values and the same moral purpose.
We consist of small village schools, large urban schools, schools in challenging circumstances and those which have the capacity to support others.
Our schools operate in geographic hubs in York, Selby, on the Yorkshire Coast and in the East Riding and The Humber.
Intent, values and uniqueness:
Excellence – We recognise that all those who are part of Ebor, whether adult or child, will be supported to achieve excellence in all they do.
Belonging – We act as one organisation and are responsible for supporting each other to achieve the best we can.
Opportunity – We provide learning that is relevant, motivating and engaging that releases a child’s curiosity and creativity. We provide career pathways for the adults in our organisation so that everyone can achieve their aspirations and fulfil their potential.
Respect – We acknowledge and celebrate that all people are different and can play a role in the Ebor family whatever their background or learning style. We celebrate the diversity within our localities and celebrate the unique characteristics within each setting.
