The Diocese of York is excited to be the sponsor of its first Church of England Academy. The academy opened in 2008 in the building of its predecessor school, Archbishop Thurstan School. We moved into state of the art new buildings in September 2011, at the heart of a learning village serving the community of East Hull. Archbishop Sentamu Academy aims to be  a centre of educational excellence with a distinctive Christian ethos, striving to:

  • Raise aspirations and achievement for all;
  • Develop confident, open-minded young people; and
  • Encourage love of learning, eagerness to succeed and willingness to participate.

“This will be more than just a school. Its students will come from the locality and be shown that what they can do for their neighbourhood is at least as important as what they can do for themselves. They will be taught that character matters more than celebrity. The Academy’s ethos will be Christian: open to all and for the benefit of all”. The Most Revd & Rt Hon Dr John Sentamu, The Archbishop of York (William Wilberforce Memorial Lecture, 30th October 2007)
