Throughout the 2021-22 academic year, the Trust has seen significant improvements across all three of its secondary academies, leading to a collection of some of the best results ever
achieved in terms of attainment.

The whole staff body are proud of the Year 11 students and have congratulated each of them for all that they have achieved during their time as part of the White Rose Academies Trust.

Mr Whitaker, CEO, White Rose Academies Trust, said: “Yesterday was one of those special and joyous days across our secondary academies.

“As this cohort of students have experienced the most challenging three years of secondary education since the end of World War Two, this makes their achievements so much more remarkable and worthy of praise. These results are yet another testament to the remarkable professionals who we employ across the Trust.

“Therefore, on behalf of the Board of the White Rose Academies Trust, I would like to express our sincere congratulations to our wonderful students, their families and our dedicated professionals. Always remember, Once White Rose, Always White Rose!”
