Ethos Academy Trust (Ethos) is a Multi Academy Trust which was formed in September 2018. Initially comprising three alternative provision academies, the Trust was formed on the belief that working together and supporting each other enables our academies to secure the best outcomes for all our children and young people. Our collective approach facilitates the sharing of skills and expertise for the benefit of our children, young people and their families.
The Trust currently consists of 4 schools: Engage Academy (KS1 & 2), Reach Academy (KS3) and Ethos College (KS4) all in Kirklees and an Alternative Provision Academy in Wakefield: Evolve Academy (KS2/3).
The new school, which received approval by the Department for Education in February 2022, will meet the needs of Rotherham pupils. The site for the new school will be the former Dinnington College building on Doe Quarry Lane, Dinnington.
It is proposed that the new school will officially open in September 2022. The building (over two storeys) has been recently refurbished by the local authority to ensure it is fit for purpose to function as a special school.
