Welcome to Archbishop Sentamu Academy!
Since opening in 2008, we have taken great pride in developing a range of exciting “learning pathways” for our students, whatever their passions and talents may be. In addition to a strong basic curriculum for all, we have developed specialisms in a range of subjects, from Mandarin Chinese to Motor Vehicle Engineering, and Photography to Philosophy of Religion.
The high quality of our teaching is underpinned by a strong Christian ethos, unparalleled pastoral care, an extensive team of learning mentors and an absolute determination that every child will succeed. This strong team ethos has led to some excellent exam results; in 3 of the last 4 years, over 60% of our students have achieved 5 or more good GCSEs at A* to C. We have a strong 6th form with around 180 students, and almost every single student has a positive destination at both 16 and 18; many are now continuing their studies at university.
“Archie” isn’t just about excellent exam results however. We have a unique partnership with Hull Kingston Rovers that enables us to run a “rugby academy”, giving our students the opportunity to be trained by professionals and even win a scholarship with Hull KR. We also have a strong commitment to the Performing Arts, with many of our students having taken part in, and indeed won on two occasions, the national “Rock Challenge” competition.
Above all, “Archie” is a friendly, welcoming academy, where students tell us they feel valued, happy and safe. OfSTED has recognised our achievements, agreeing we were “Good with Outstanding features” in 2014, so I would encourage you to pay us a visit and see for yourselves all that we could offer your child. I look forward to meeting you!
