Welcome to the YCAT website.

The Yorkshire Collaborative Academy Trust (YCAT) is a well-established and highly successful multi-academy trust for primary schools.

We formed in August 2015 and are now made up of five primary schools across North Yorkshire.

Our family of schools share expertise and support each other through collaborative practice.

We are very proud of the high quality of education for all children provided in our schools.  This is because of the rich and well-planned curriculum that meets the needs of all children, building their knowledge and skills systematically as they progress through the schools.

A key feature of our Trust is that we have considerable experience and expertise in supporting rural and urban primary schools. YCAT has its own expert school improvement team that is particularly skilled in collaborative school improvement approaches and provides personalised support to all our schools.

We hope you find everything you need on our website and if you would like any more information then please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Jo Robinson, CEO and National Leader of Education.


'As a Trustee of YCAT, I would like to express my appreciation and acknowledgement of the unswerving dedication, determination and commitment of the CEO, primary school staff/teachers, school governors and parents in managing the impact of Covid-19 on the schools during 2020 and in 2021.  It was a  testament to the ethos of all the schools across YCAT that the levels of pupil attendance continued to be so high compared to the national figures...'
