English across the Trust 

Across the Trust the English departments are staffed by dedicated and forward-thinking teams of specialist English teachers; the teams provide additional support and intervention where necessary. Our vision is to motivate, enthuse and inspire all learners so that they have a curiosity and interest in English and are active participants in their learning. Through our curriculum, we aim to foster and encourage a lasting enjoyment and appreciation of both literature and language, enabling every student to achieve his or her potential. Ultimately, we want our students to be skilful and confident communicators who are prepared for adult life in modern Britain.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust was established in September 2016 and is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. The Trust is committed to providing world class education for all our young people within our community and as such we recognise the pivotal role that our staff team have in this respect. The Trust places at the heart of its development a commitment to high quality professional development for all staff who join the Trust. We understand that by investing in our staff we will create an organisation with a shared vision and values that will transform education for young people.

Accord is a Wakefield based Trust; all four academies in the Trust are closely located to one another which lends itself to many opportunities to work closely and collaboratively. All academies are within a three mile radius of one another and can be found a short drive off junction 40 of the M1.
