Teacher Training with the Cardinal Hume Academy Trust

The Cardinal Hume Academy Trust provides the perfect platform to enable you to develop into an outstanding classroom Practitioner. As a trust we achieve excellent teacher training success through our access to outstanding classroom teaching, exceptional mentoring to nurture your development and the excellent classroom behaviour of our students.

Our aim is to consistently provide you with what you need to develop as a trainee teacher.

About the Cardinal Hume Academy Trust

The trust is a collection of three schools (with support of a fourth) led by Executive Head Teacher, Martin Tissot who has implemented policies that prioritise excellent behaviour for learning and pupil progress. This approach has led to significant progress in Ofsted ratings for all our schools since they joined the Trust and all are now regarded as outstanding or good. They are excellent environments in which to teach.
