Venn Academy Trust is a pioneering academy trust, committed to building educational environments where all pupils are inspired to become lifelong learners who achieve the very highest standards possible.

Collaborating with all partners, the Trust works with its unique settings to create world class learning experiences for all.

Our journey so far has been one of making a difference to the most vulnerable learners. Together we ensure we make a positive difference to the lives of the children and communities that we serve.

Our trust seeks to explore the qualities that make our pupils unique.

We aim to provide the best educational support and provision for young people in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
