We are delighted that we were rated as OUTSTANDING in all areas by Ofsted in May 2022! This demonstrates the first-class education we provide for all students and the local community. Prior to this visit, Ofsted last visited in 2016 at which time the school has just joined the Trinity MAT and was rated as requires improvement. Since that time, the MAT supported the academy to make rapid progress leading to vast improvements which began to emerge in 2017 and have continued to gather momentum, culminating in the recent Ofsted visit. As a result the academy is proud to list the amazing achievements below:
- 2018 + 2019 Highest performing school in Wakefield in year 11 examinations
- 2019 TES Secondary School of the Year
- 2020 SIAMS Excellent – Church School Inspection
- 2022 Ofsted Outstanding
During their visit Ofsted saw first-hand the amazing curriculum in action, alongside our excellent personal development curriculum. They also witnessed the calm, purposeful and safe learning environment in place. The full report outlines the exceptional work that we do in full so please take some time to read this here.

As the situation in the Ukraine and Russia unfolds, we would like to do something as an academy to help.
Today we are launching a TAC Crisis Appeal so that we can raise much needed funds to support humanitarian groups working in Ukraine. If students/parents/carers would like to donate to this appeal, please visit ParentPay where you will be able to make a donation. If you would like to donate but do not have a ParentPay account then do not worry, we have another way for you to support.
Essential Items Collection
We are collecting essential items that are needed to support Ukrainian refugees. The items are due to be shipped to Poland in two weeks time. The list of items that we are collecting is below. If you would like to donate, please bring all items to Chaplaincy by Friday 11th March.

- Dried fruit
- Food that does not require cooking,
e.g. pot noodles
- Snacks for gluten-free and diabetics
- Baby milk in a liquid form already mixed
- Wet wipes
- Bottles with a dummy
- Pet food
Well done to Holly in Year 10 and Daniela in Year 8 for becoming TAC’s Youth Parliament candidates after a tough interview. Congratulations to the other 12 candidates who also showed passion for active citizenship and change for young people in Wakefield.
