We are delighted to be one of the founder members of the STAR Multi-Academy Trust
The STAR Multi-Academy Trust
About our Trust – The STAR (Sherburn Tadcaster And Rural) Multi-Academy Trust:
There has been a strong tradition of collaboration between our partner schools for many years which culminated in the establishment of the STAR Teaching School Alliance in 2016 and then the STAR Multi Academy Trust (STAR MAT) was ‘born’ in May 2018.
We are a Trust of:
9 primary schools
2 secondary schools
All of our schools are located within a shared geographic community:
We are a highly collegiate organisation, proud to be based within our local area communities and therefore we describe ourselves as a community trust. With this we recognise the responsibility to work with all local partners to deliver the very best possible outcomes and future aspirations for young people and to provide places where pupils develop and thrive academically, socially, culturally and spiritually in the safest possible environments.
Whilst we work closely together in partnership, every school in STAR has its own unique identity, vision and values which run alongside those of the Trust. This is an important defining principle of our Trust, that schools are unique within a defined framework. Everyone understands their roles and responsibilities and works to our common vision, aims and values through our collegiate approach.

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.
We work closely with the Exchange Teaching Hub. They are responsible for administering National Professional Qualifications, the Early Careers Framework, and CPD in our area. https://www.teaching-school-hubs.org.uk/
As a church school, we belong to the Diocese of York. They are a strategic partner in our Trust. You can visit their website here.
