We are Collaborative Academies Trust

A growing multi-academy trust for primary, secondary and special schools in three geographical regions; the South West, East Midlands and Essex.

At the heart of CAT are its trustees

Trustees are carefully selected from the member schools, national and local leaders of education and the wider education and business sector. They are the custodians of the vision that CAT shares with its family of schools.

Our trustees manage access to the Education Research in Action Foundation to provide funding for support and enrichment activities for teachers and learners across member schools.

What people say about us

Schools working with us have been keen to share with others the experience and impact of our work together. The quotes represent a range of work with Primary, Secondary and Special schools and Local Authorities.
