Aspire Academy is part of the Hope Sentamu Learning Trust.
Hope Sentamu Learning Trust came into being on 1 September 2021, following the merger of Hope Learning Trust York and Sentamu Academy Learning Trust. Each of the predecessor Trusts had been named after an Archbishop of York – Baron David Hope and Lord John Sentamu respectively.
As a Church of England Trust, Hope Sentamu brings together church and community schools with a shared vision that all pupils should not only receive an outstanding education, but that they should also have the opportunity to experience life in all its fullness.
The Trust’s values, Respect, Teamwork and Kindness, underpin the vision ‘Life in all its fullness – a place to thrive’ and are central to all Trust activities and aims.
There is a clear commitment to ensure the flourishing of students and providing opportunities for staff to develop their own career pathways, alongside the provision of high-quality education and resources.
Prior to the merger, colleagues across Hope and Sentamu worked collaboratively for a period of almost two years and as this new partnership develops, the newly merged Trust will offer many benefits:
At Hope Sentamu, we want to inspire our young people from an early age with a vision of how they can become extraordinary citizens – ambitious for themselves, their families and their community, committed to serving others, and fully equipped to carry on learning throughout their lives.
