Aurora Academies Trust


In 2017, City Academy Whitehawk was very proud to become an Aurora Academies Trust academy. We have excellent, collaborative working relationships with our network of seven settings and benefit from sharing expertise.


Our Headteacher, Mr. McMorrin, became the Interim Executive Headteacher of another AAT school (Heron Park Primary Academy) and we were very proud to achieve a richly deserved judgement of Good in our May 2022 Ofsted inspection.
