HCAT is a family of schools in and around Kingston upon Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
All our Academies are within the boundaries of Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
We are a family of schools who collaborate and support each other and aim to be outstanding in the teaching, learning and aspiration of children in our schools.
Our children come from a wide variety of backgrounds and we strive to nurture all their talents and help them achieve a happy, rewarding and successful time in our schools.
HCAT schools are committed to identifying, nurturing and harnessing the talents of staff at all levels.
Restorative practice forms the foundation of our culture. Throughout the Trust our Staff and Children embrace this ethos and this has helped our children to thrive in a caring and inclusive environment.
Hull Collaborative Academy Trust was formed from four high performing schools in Hull whose head teachers shared the same vision and values to provide the best possible education for Children in Hull. It also intends to provide a local solution to sponsorship so schools in difficulty can access a local sponsor.
The Academy Trust in partnership with the teaching school also offers school to school support and high quality CPD (Continuing professional development) for schools. There is a high focus on developing quality teachers for the city and developing staff and leaders through our NQT, RQT and leadership programmes.
HCAT also runs a School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) developing the teachers and school leaders of tomorrow for the Hull area.
