Conyers School was first founded in 1590 to serve the community of Yarm and surrounding areas. It is one of the oldest schools in England. It has a long and rich tradition of providing a first class education and playing a full role in the wider life of the town.
Conyers Trust was created on 1st November 2016, as a Multi Academy Trust (MAT). Multi-academy trusts have different governance arrangements because they are established to oversee and manage more than one academy. They typically have members, trustees, and local governing bodies. Details of our governance arrangements are set out in this section of the website.
The Trust expanded during 2018 with local primary schools Kirklevington and Layfield joining with Conyers School and Bader Primary school. Levendale Primary joined the Trust from April 2019. There are strong links between all these schools and shared values and ethos. Together we feel we can do more for our local communities, students, parents and staff.
With the expansion of the Trust to now include Bader, Kirklevington, Layfield and Levendale Primary schools, and with one other local school in the process of joining, the Trustees felt it was appropriate to have a new name to reflect the changes. Inspired by the first school in Stockton, the Trust has decided to change its name to The 1590 Trust.
