About Consilium

Consilium Academies is a multi-academy Trust working across the North of England. It has nine academy schools located in Yorkshire, the North West, and the North East. Consilium is dedicated to enriching lives and inspiring ambitions for both students and colleagues.


Our curriculum vision applies to all our young people, regardless of background, gender, sexual orientation or ability.

Our young people will develop a life-long love of Business and Enterprise through the study of relevant and relatable content delivered by subject experts who are passionate and dedicated to every child they teach. Every Enterprise lesson will include the bigger picture, so students know and understand what they are learning and why.

All students at Washington Academy are, without exception, entitled to a world-class education that is holistic, ambitious and aspirational, allowing them to truly understand their potential and set themselves the highest aspirations.

It is vital that we prepare our young people so that they are empowered to become engaged positive and respectful citizens through a dedicated focus on professional development.

We are responsible for ensuring our young people are confident to pursue ambitious next steps in Business and Enterprise education, employment or training which will support their future careers through allowing them to develop employability skills such as presenting to a small group of their peers and obtaining a wide range of transferable skills that can be used in any classroom and in our young people’s future away from Washington Academy.
