Our four schools currently educate over 5000 children and employ more than 400 teachers and around 350 support staff.
It is our ambition to develop more centres of educational excellence in areas that would benefit from our experience, both through fresh partnerships and the development of new schools.
For almost three decades we have worked in close partnership with Local Education Authorities, the Department for Education, other schools and Further and Higher Education providers; we have collaborated and co-operated with these bodies over the years to ensure positive outcomes for staff, students and parents.
We are keen to work with both primary and secondary schools and are actively seeking mutually beneficial partnerships that will lead to increased access to the very best educational opportunities for children across the North of England.
The future of education is increasingly ‘global’ and relies on links being fostered to create a rigorous and stimulating learning environment capable of developing well-rounded, competent and wise young people who have the self-confidence to make a valuable contribution to the world of work and society at large. Being part of a family of schools all sponsored by the Foundation offers many benefits to both staff and students.
For example, the best practice in teaching and learning can be shared across all the schools, allowing the most effective innovations developed in one to be replicated elsewhere; students benefit immensely from the many activities shared by the schools, ranging from inter-school competitions to visits abroad; resources are available and deployed quickly whenever a school has need – whether in the form of leadership support, training, or expertise.
