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, established initially for the northern church schools of the Church of England dioceses of Leeds and York. Our Trust currently comprises one Secondary and thirteen Primary schools.

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.

The values that underpin this Mission statement are: Excellence – Community – Integrity – Trust – Compassion – Opportunity – Wisdom – Mutual Respect

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 to 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’.
