I am delighted to welcome you to the Ethos Academy Trust website.

Ethos Academy Trust was formed in September 2018 as a result of longstanding effective partnerships between three settings in Kirklees. The three founding schools have a strong track record of providing high-quality education and support to children and schools across Key Stages 1 to 4. We seek to explore, nurture and develop the qualities that make our pupils unique through the provision of the highest quality education and support to all young people.

Our aim is that the Academies, supported by the Trust, will provide an environment which is welcoming, nurturing, calm, safe and purposeful and which will stretch our young people academically, support them pastorally and help them develop socially and emotionally. Ethos Academy Trust Board’s vision is to develop a high performing Multi Academy Trust that delivers the very best educational experiences for pupils from across the primary and secondary age range. The Board has a clear focus on raising standards, encouraging innovation and strengthening the ethos, vision and values of the Trust to ensure that we have a positive impact on all our young people. The Board provides effective support and challenge to ensure that we build on our track record of excellence by developing strategic partnerships to improve quality, share best practice and operate effectively and efficiently.

I hope that you find the information within our website useful and informative. If you would like to know more about Ethos Academy Trust, please do not hesitate to contact us.
