    Consultation – Proposal that Ryedale Learning Trust merges with Areté Learning Trust

    6 December 2023 (by admin)

    Areté Learning Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust of four schools in North Yorkshire. We are confident that there is close alignment between our trusts, both in terms of the communities we serve and our respective vision and values.

    Following extensive discussion and due diligence, the Board of Trustees have decided to formally consider whether a merger with the Areté Learning Trust will be in the best interests of the pupils and the staff within our respective trusts. Discussions so far have led us to believe that we would benefit from a partnership with Areté Learning Trust, and we would now like to consult more broadly with all stakeholders on this proposal to formalise our partnership.

    How do I find out more?

    Consultation will begin today, 6th December 2023, for a period of two weeks and will end at 3pm on 20th December 2023. This letter, together with the attached frequently asked questions document, provides you with some background information and we will publish these on our trust website.

    How do I respond to the consultation?

    The Trustees would very much like to hear your opinion.  We have provided a consultation response form attached to the letter linked below. Please complete and return this form if you wish to provide a written response to the consultation. Please email the completed form to stakeholderconsultation@ryedalelearningtrust.co.uk by the deadline of 3pm on 20th December 2023.
