Our Journey

Impact Education Multi Academy Trust was established in 2016 by The Halifax Academy, the first all-through 4-16 school in Calderdale. Trustees chose the name Impact to represent that the Trust is focussed on working to ensure the greatest possible impact on the lives of all the children & young people, their families, staff and wider community within the Trust. It was also a deliberate decision to choose a name that is distinct from The Halifax Academy as trustees believe it is important for the Trust to be seen as a separate identity, with The Halifax Academy being one of the equal partners within it.
