Welcome to South Hunsley

Welcome to South Hunsley

South Hunsley is part of The Education Alliance, a Multi Academy Trust, that has educational excellence at its heart and is dedicated to the higher achievement of students.

The Education Alliance is an established Mutli Academy Trust, that is developing collaborative partnerships with academies across the Humber region.

Seeking excellence through inspirational leadership, collaboration, teamwork, innovation and challenge we work to ensure that all of us achieve our very best.  The partnership between the three founder academies; Hunsley Primary, South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College and Malet Lambert, is very positive and allows each school to retain their own separate identities, whilst sharing the Trust’s strong vision and values.

Hunsley Primary opened as a free school and is committed to being an innovative, stimulating and forward-thinking; making the most of its freedoms to impact positively on pupils’ lives and provide opportunities for all its children to make outstanding progress. In particular, the school is committed to developing pupils as mathematicians and scientists.

South Hunsley School is a thriving academy situated in the attractive village of Melton in the semi-rural local authority of the East Riding of Yorkshire. It has an excellent reputation for delivering the highest quality of education and instilling a strong sense of aspiration and ambition in all of its students.  In 2016, 86% of students achieved 5 or more GCSEs A*-C including English and Maths with the vast majority of these students now continuing their studies in South Hunsley Sixth Form College.  The Sixth Form also achieves results of a similar high standard and, in 2016, there were increases in both the average point score per student and average point score per entry which now means, on average, students achieve the equivalent of 3 B grades at A Level.

Delivering excellence in educational provision across the region is The Education Alliance's core goal, something that South Hunsley School started 5 years ago after establishing a successful school to school support service that helped to bring local schools out of Special Measures categories.  Following this success, South Hunsley was given Teaching School status in 2014 and is now the lead school in the Wolds Teaching School Alliance. 

I hope that when you read more aboutour approach you will recognise values you share and feel inspired to join The Education Alliance team.
