Our Story

Our story began in 2018 when our three founding schools (Ethos College, Reach Academy and Engage Academy) came together to form Ethos Academy Trust. Since then, the Trust has doubled the number of academies, whilst quadrupling in pupil numbers.

We are a mixed community of alternative provisions and special schools, operating across three local authorities within West and South Yorkshire. Our work extends beyond our academies to add value to the wider system through the offer of wide-ranging support to other schools and wider services.

We celebrate and support the uniqueness of our schools in meeting the needs of their local communities. Our nurturing ethos, underpinned by our clear mission, vision and core values, enables our pupils, their families and our staff teams to thrive.
