The Pathfinder Teaching School Alliance was designated in April 2014. The alliance has and will retain a small strategic core allowing us to focus on the areas we consider priorities in our region. Our overarching ethos as a teaching school is to improve the educational provision for pupils and staff across the York, the East Riding and North Yorkshire. We are based at Archbishop Holgate’s School in York but our partnership stretches well into the East Riding and North Yorkshire. We do not have a formal membership structure and are actively seeking to widen our school partnerships and networks.
