The Consortium
Academy Trust

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.

About The Trust

Based in the East Riding of Yorkshire, The Consortium Academy Trust 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.

The three founding schools have a successful history of partnership working, having operated Consortium Sixth Form arrangements for over 25 years.

The Consortium Academy Trust looks forward to providing high quality support and governance to other local schools, both as a sponsor and for schools looking to convert to academy status wishing to join us.

Our Academies

We’re passionate about providing the best outcomes for all our students and ensuring that staff have the opportunity to support other schools whilst also developing their own skills.
