In this special, feature-length edition of Ebor Talk, we explore how and why Ebor Academy Trust was set up and speak to key people involved. 
Former Haxby Road governor Rachel Totton, now chair of the trust, explains how the school was "rescued" thanks to local intervention. Founding chief executive Richard Ludlow talks about the beginning of a journey a decade ago, which led to 23 schools joining Ebor - so far.
Finally, current chief executive Gail Brown reflects on how the pandemic changed everything and, looking ahead, how a school-led system can champion school improvement.
