Working in partnership across the Ryedale, Scarborough and York region to provide high-quality training and continuous professional development for teachers at every stage of their career.

We are delighted to introduce ourselves as the Teaching School Hub for Ryedale, Scarborough and York. From September, there will be 87 Teaching School Hubs across the country operating as school-led centres of excellence, for teacher and leadership training and development. We are proud that the Pathfinder Teaching School Hub, along with our key partners, will serve schools of all phases and types in our area.

Collaboration and collegiality underpin the vision and values of the Hub, which will unite expertise and experience across the region. This network of partnerships will facilitate the creation and delivery of high-quality, evidence based continuous professional development, benefitting colleagues at all stages of their career. We are led by experienced teachers and senior leaders who understand the importance of staff development and its impact on retention, expertise and ultimately, the life chances of the young people we are here to educate and support.

The Hub will be a single point of contact where you will be able to access the region’s CPD offer. This includes Curriculum Hubs, Ed Tech Demonstrators, and Research Schools alongside bespoke CPD based on local needs.

“We are excited about the opportunities this network of partners brings to colleagues in the teaching profession across our region. These collaborations are integral to delivering the core functions of the Hub, ensuring every teacher at every stage of their career will have the best support, training and development available.”

About us

Archbishop Holgate’s School

We are a successful Church of England Secondary School in York with a fully comprehensive intake. Our commitment to values, care and achievement is driven by the tenet that ‘your present circumstances don’t determine where you go; they merely determine where you start’. Alongside our commitment to inclusion, educating the whole child and fostering a unique school environment, our strong academic track record places the school in the top 5% nationally for both GCSE and A Level outcomes. We are also particularly proud of the progress that disadvantaged students make within our school.

Pathfinder Teaching School Alliance

We are an established Teaching School Alliance with a commitment to providing the very best research-based training, CPD and school-led support. Across the region we have delivered NQT, RQT, Middle and Senior Leader courses to approximately 5,000 colleagues since 2014. We have also piloted the ECT programme and train between 50 to 60 primary and secondary ITT students each year. We work in partnership with the University of York, York St John University and Sheffield Hallam University to deliver high-quality training and development, ensuring Early Career Teachers are well equipped to become outstanding practitioners.

Archbishop Holgate’s is a founding member of Pathfinder Multi Academy Trust. Formed in August 2016, the Trust is a partnership of church and community schools based in York and is currently comprised of one secondary school and nine primary schools. Schools in the Trust enjoy a close working partnership based on a shared vision, common values and a commitment to providing an excellent education for all students.
