John Smeaton Academy is joining an educational trust which is increasingly viewed as the highest performing in the country.

The GORSE Academies Trust, which was established in 2011, is considered by government and key organisations across the education sector to be setting the national benchmark of excellence regarding the performance of less advantaged pupils of all ages. The power of the trust’s work has been emphatically recognised by Ofsted.

GORSE has moved more schools straight from Inadequate to Outstanding than any other trust in the country and expects to see that trend continuing in the 2021/2022 academic year.
