Who we are
The Yorkshire Collaborative Academy Trust (YCAT) is a growing multi-academy trust dedicated to working with primary schools. We were formed in 2015 by three primary schools that had a long track record of successfully working together in partnership. During the autumn term 2016 another primary school joined the trust and another primary school is in the process of joining.
YCAT was built on shared core values and a passionate belief in collaborative approaches to learning. Members for our multi-academy trust were recruited from our local region and perform the vital role of holding our trust to account.
At the heart of YCAT are its Trustees who were initially selected from member schools with a wide range of experience from the education and business sector. Trustees are the custodians of the vision YCAT shares with its family of schools and strategically plan school improvement across our schools.
“We are building a partnership of schools who put the needs of children at their heart and are committed to true collaborative working. Our schools learn together to ensure pupils are confident, responsible and are equipped with the knowledge and skills to take ownership of their life-long learning.This website should provide an overview of our beliefs and working practices.”
