Vale of York Academy is one of many Hope Sentamu Learning Trust secondary schools. Vale of York has undergone a period of transformation and rapid improvement since joining the Trust in 2017. Recently judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, this is an exciting time for the academy and will be an exciting opportunity for an ambitious educational professional to join the team. This is a great career opportunity, a chance to work in a close knit community but with extensive opportunities for professional development across the Trust as a whole.

Vale of York is an 11-16 comprehensive school which serves a mixed catchment extending from the City Centre of York to the satellite village of Skelton on the northern edge of the City. The academy is over-subscribed; it has a growing population of more than 600 students who enter the school with attainment at around national averages, but with an increasing number of high attainers and gifted and talented pupils. Our commitment to every child is absolute and we strive to meet the needs of all our pupils whether they are capable of achieving ten Grade 9’s at GCSE or require the support of a full time teaching assistant or individual package of learning in order to reach their full potential. We believe that Vale of York should be the first choice school for every student in our immediate catchment and that we have an important role in transforming the lives of all our young people and their community.

Vale of York is a community school which expects each individual to be their very best by accepting personal responsibility and always striving to do better. These expectations extend far beyond learning. We expect the highest standards of behaviour, creating an environment where students feel safe, sanctions are applied fairly and positive contributions are recognised and rewarded. We have a strong commitment to the personal development of your young people, which we believe enables them to responsible citizens who go on to play their part in improving their community.
