The Church of England has been involved closely in education for centuries. In every age, the church has looked for educational opportunities, and has taken the lead in exploring new possibilities.

Academies are now very much a part of the national pattern of school-age education. A growing number of young people are learning within the context of academies, and it’s only right that there is a Church of England presence within the range of academies nationally.

The Diocese of York stretches from the Humber to the Tees. In this area there are over 120 Church of England educational institutions. All four of our secondary schools, as well as a number of primaries, are academies and The Diocese of York Educational Trust was founded in order to represent the Diocese as the corporate member in Multi-Academy Trusts which include Church of England academies.

Together with the Diocesan Board of Education, the Trust is committed to working so that our young people can have the best possible educational experience, develop their gifts, grow and mature in a safe environment, understand the significance of faith, and prepare for life in modern Britain.
