    Helen Winn | CEO Hope Sentamu Learning Trust
    We always try to meet individual needs by getting to know our children very well as this helps them to thrive and develop. By being able to share some really good practice, see examples of how others work and tap in to contacts that other staff have throughout the Trust, we’ve seen a really positive impact on children’s education and general wellbeing.

    Allyson Buckton | Headteacher, Forest of Galtres Anglican Methodist Primary School
    The partnership with Hope Sentamu Learning Trust and, importantly, with Manor Church of England Academy, is significant as it is unique to the schools in York. No other multi-academy trust exists as yet in this area that gives scope for two secondary schools to work in collaboration.
