We are pleased to confirm that on 1 February 2017 Driffield School and Sixth Form converted to an academy and joined The Education Alliance Multi Academy Trust. The Trust consists of South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College, Malet Lambert School and Hunsley Primary School. South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College is lead school in the Wolds Teaching School Alliance. The Trust is also an accredited centre for initial teacher training, with Yorkshire Wolds Teaching Training, based at South Hunsley School, opening in September 2017.
We are currently in the process of ratifying the new Local Governing Body for Driffield school after a rigorous interview process and the successful Governors will be announced in due course.
Driffield School will retain its individual identity and the current school name and logo will continue to be used on all newsletters and publications. The Education Alliance logo will only appear on trust-wide communications across all schools.
