We are delighted to be one of the founder members of the STAR Multi-Academy Trust


The STAR (Sherburn, Tadcaster and Rural) Multi Academy Trust became an entity on Tuesday 1 May 2018, when Monk Fryston CE Primary, Riverside Primary, Saxton CE Primary and Tadcaster Grammar School formally obtained their academy status. Since then the trust has grown rapidly.

All schools in the STAR Multi-Academy trust retain their own individual ethos and character and Local Governing Bodies continue to have a very significant role to play in the running of each school.

For further details about the structure and operation of the STAR MAT please see our web-site at

We are also the lead school in the STAR Alliance

Over many years the primary and secondary schools in the Sherburn and Tadcaster area have worked informally together sharing training, resources and facilities as opportunities arise. We continue to work in partnership as an alliance of schools, delivering Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in association with the University of Hull, as well as collaborative training and practice development projects.
