Academy information

The Compass Academy has recently joined the Sentamu Academy Learning Trust, which prides itself on providing the highest standard of education to all students, regardless of their background.

The Sentamu Academy Learning Trust

The Sentamu Academy Learning Trust (SALT) was created in February 2015 and comprises 1 Secondary Academy, 2 Alternative Provision Academies (Year 6 – Year 11) and 2 Primary Academies; all of our academies are within the boundary of Hull.

SALT’s prime aim is to ensure that all pupils in its academies receive an outstanding education, that they might experience life in all its fullness. It will have a particular focus for serving those pupils who are most at risk of long-term social exclusion.

Our aims also include bringing the highest standards of education to the young people in our local area. Following the principle of “Starting with the end in sight”, we want to inspire our young people from Early Years through to Post-16 with a vision for how they can become extraordinary citizens – ambitious for themselves, their families and their community, committed to serving others, and fully equipped to carry on learning throughout their lives.
