Welcome to Catcote Academy

I am pleased, on behalf of the staff, students and trustees, to write these few words of welcome and an introduction to Catcote Academy which is a specialist provision providing education for 11–19-year-olds.

Catcote Academy is part of Hartlepool Aspire Multi-Academy Trust which is at present made up of Catcote Academy (secondary and Post 16 students) and Catcote Futures (specialist FE college).  This is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hartlepool Aspire Trust.

The Trust currently operates over seven sites which includes Catcote Academy on Catcote Road, a sixth form provision for red/blue pathway learners on Brierton Lane, a sixth form and employability centre for red pathway students with autism, Catcote Futures on Warren Road, Catcote Metro (retail outlet) in Hartlepool Middleton Grange shopping centre, The Vestry (community coffee shop) in Christ Church Art Gallery and a Caravan situated in Crimdon Dene Holiday Park.

We are committed to and passionate about the learning and progress of our students. Staff and trustees have high aspirations for our learners and we aim to provide a high quality, relevant and balanced education for all our students that focuses on individual, personal and academic achievement that will enhance the life opportunities for our young people as they move into the adult world. There is a happy and positive atmosphere in which students can fulfil their potential and grow in self-confidence with respect for the people and environment around them.

We hope our web site and social media sites will provide you with the information and news you need so that you can keep up to date with what is happening here at our school. Whether you are a prospective parent, current parent, staff, student, community or casual browser we trust you will enjoy looking through our site as we aim to provide the best for both our students and the wider community.

If you would like further information, or wish to visit the school, then please contact the school office.
