Welcome from our Trust Leader

06038At Northern Star Academies Trust, we believe that our role as a committed partnership of schools is to inspire and support learners of all ages to fulfil their potential and better the world.

Northern Star Academies Trust was founded in April 2015. Since our inception we have achieved a great deal to grow a thriving and dynamic Trust of primary and secondary schools who serve the vibrant communities of Keighley, Skipton and Harrogate. We are unique in our contextual differences and yet united in our deeply held belief in the power of great education to change lives. Through collaboration, we seek to build on each school’s strengths so that we can have a greater impact on our broader Northern Star community.

In a world of constant change, the one chance our children and young people have to experience an excellent education is precious – by working as a partnership of schools we are in constant pursuit of excellence for every child to make their one chance, truly count!

By far the greatest asset in our Trust is our staff and the greatest asset of our Trust is our children, young people and their families – making a positive difference in their lives is what matters!
