Together for Excellence
Welcome to the web site for Dales Academies Trust (Dales) which was incorporated on 12th September 2017 and is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) with sponsor status. It was established initially for the northern church schools of the Church of England dioceses of Leeds and York but now includes its first community school, namely Carnagill Community Primary school located on Catterick Garrison. Our Trust currently comprises one Secondary and thirteen Primary schools. The Trust was recently delighted to be confirmed as the sponsor for a Primary Free School due to open in September 2024, which will serve north Northallerton.
Our mission is “To be a Multi Academy Trust for North Yorkshire and the north of the Dioceses of York and Leeds, determined to deliver the very highest quality of education through collaboration, shared best practice and underpinned by our Christian ethos and values.”
Our Vision as a group of schools is that: “Working together for excellence, and rooted in quality, collaboration and care, we deliver exceptional learning experiences through inspirational teaching and nurturing a love of life-long learning. We dare greatly, travel hopefully and enable each other to flourish”.
As with the other church MATs across both dioceses, our Trust is open to church and non-church schools with a core purpose of providing an inclusive education for children of any ability, culture, gender, sexuality, faith or no faith. Our first community school joined us on 1st April 2020. The Trust ethos is derived from, and informed by, the Church of England’s commitment to education and schooling over more than 200 years; the Trust closely adheres to the Church of England’s policy of ‘church schools for all’ rather than ‘faith schools for some’.
