About Academy Trust

The Coombe Academy Trust (CAT), formally known as The Coombe Secondary Schools Academy Trust, was formed on 1st February 2012 comprising Coombe Boys' School, Coombe Girls' School and Coombe Sixth Form.  The origins of the Trust were based on the highly successful Coombe Secondary Schools Federation which had been in existence since January 2006.  On 1 April 2014, Knollmead Primary School joined the CAT as a sponsored academy and we were pleased to welcome Green Lane Primary and Nursery School into the Trust on 1 September 2018.
