Archbishop Sentamu Academy is at an exciting time in its development.  An 11-18 academy sponsored by the Diocese of York, we achieved “Good with Outstanding Features” in our OfSTED inspection in 2014, “Outstanding” in our section 48 SIAMS inspection, and have enjoyed four successive years of strongly rising exam results.  In 2013 63% of students gained 5+ A* to C including English and Maths, and 100% achieved 5+ A* to C (up from 29% in 2009). This had led to the academy being in the top 50 most improved schools nationally for two consecutive periods: 2009-2012, and also 2010-2013.  This year, we were also 108th nationally for achievement of students in receipt of the pupil premium.  Equally importantly, we enjoy success in sports and the Performing Arts; our students have won the National Rock Challenge competition twice, and students have taken part in sporting tours in both Spain and Australia.

Archbishop Sentamu Academy (ASA) is the lead academy in the Sentamu Academy Learning Trust (SALT).  The Trust sits at the forefront of the education agenda, bringing together ASA, an Alternative Provision Academy and three primary academies to form a powerful network, transforming education for young people in Hull.
