The Consortium Academy Trust


On 1 September 2019, Winifred Holtby joined The Consortium Academy Trust. The Consortium Academy Trust (TCAT) was formed in September 2017 by the coming together of Cottingham Academy Trust, The Hessle Academy Community Trust and Wolfreton School and Sixth Form College.

These three schools have a successful history of partnership working, having operated Consortium Sixth Form arrangements for over 25 years. The Trust seeks to build on these relationships to create a regional structure that will see like-minded schools working together effectively within a partnership based on mutual trust and shared values. Although we are a relatively new Trust, we have grown from the initial founding schools and have since welcomed into our family Croxby Primary, Howden School, Holderness Academy & Sixth Form College and Keyingham Primary.


  • A Trust that promotes academic excellence, where exciting opportunities allow students to excel in all that they do and leave prepared to achieve all their ambitions
  • A Trust whose academies deliver the maximum potential for progress through inspirational teaching and learning, and outstanding school to school support
  • A Trust with a leading community role, whose academies are the preferred choice for students, parents and staff


We believe in putting our children and young people first. We will have a supportive, yet challenging environment to allow learners and our colleagues the best chance to:

  • Compete with the belief that they have every chance of success
  • Enable teamwork so that we can achieve more than can be done individually
  • Create a culture where we can confidently take appropriate risk
  • Be proud of ourselves, our peers, our academies, and our local communities


Our core values underpin everything we do:

  • Aspiration: We are ambitious. We aim high for ourselves and for others. We believe that we can make a real difference
  • Respect: We respect ourselves and each other. We respect the diverse environment and the community
  • Integrity: We are honest with ourselves and each other. We do things for the right reasons
  • Responsibility: We take responsibility for everything we do. We see mistakes as an opportunity to improve and to get things right next time. We do this in an environment where we can take appropriate risk in the pursuit of success
