Since Sentamu Academy Learning Trust was founded in 2015, the educational landscape has continued to evolve, providing both opportunity and challenge for our vision of academies which serve communities, nurture excellence and are authentically Christian. Our Trust comprises five academies:

• Archbishop Sentamu Academy - an 11-19 “sponsored” academy;

• St. James’ C of E primary academy;

• Newland St. John’s C of E primary academy;

• ASPIRE AP academy – a 150-strong provision opened under the Free School programme in 2014; and

• Compass AP academy, a 60 place 11-14 provision. 

Together our academies educate well over 2,000 students from ages 3 to 19, and employ more than 300 staff.  

The Principal of St. James’ is also the Executive Principal of Newland St. John’s Academy. The new Executive Principal will further develop the Trust’s vision by leading and ensuring the highest standards of teaching and learning for all primary pupils, ensuring the best possible outcomes for all learners. We need someone who has an excellent track record of “achieving against the odds” and who excels in seeing and developing the potential in their teams. Above all, we are looking to appoint someone committed to demonstrating their Christian faith in every aspect of the work they undertake in achieving these goals.

This is an exciting position. We realise that this post has a high level of challenge, but we believe that the successful candidate will find it a highly rewarding experience.
