North Star is a collaboration of primary and special schools in North Yorkshire, led by Meadowside Academy in Knaresborough. We were designated in spring 2014.

North Star Executive

North Star is governed by an Executive Board made up of  the Teaching School Lead, the School Improvement Director and the Teaching School Director, plus the Chairs of its CPLD, School to School Support and iTT committees. The Executive Board meets three times per year to ratify the decisions of the committees and make high-level strategic decisions about the Teaching School. Committee members are selected by the members of the alliance and the posts are reviewed every two years.
