I am proud to have my name linked to this Academy. I strongly believe in its vision to aspire, serve and achieve.

Archbishop Sentamu

The Archbishop announced in 2008 a commitment to raise £1.5m for a new Academy in East Hull. He formally opened the Academy in 2008 and it presently has over 1,400 students aged 11-19.

The aim of the Sentamu Academy Learning Trust is to provide the best possible educational outcomes for young people locally.

The Academy's specialisms include Health Sciences and Business & Enterprise. Children are also taught through the school's Christian ethos character matters more than celebrity. The Academy's ethos is Christian: open to all and for the benefit of all.

The Archbishop said: "I pray that every boy and girl who benefits from a place at the Academy will have written on their heart the biblical texts, 'If Christ shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.' 'Do to others as you would have them do to you.' This is an Academy with a difference. It strives to be a centre of excellence and life long learning. An Academy for the whole community. As we Africans say, now as an African Yorkshire man, "It takes the whole village to raise, nurture and educate a child."
