Dorchester is part of Hull Collaborative Academy Trust (HCAT), one of the largest and most successful academy trusts in Hull and the East Riding. It is made up of fifteen primary schools and one secondary school and our collaboration ensures that we are able to offer our children a high standard of education and wide-ranging experiences.
We are a fully inclusive school and have a strong reputation in the local area in catering for pupils with a range of additional needs. Our internal ‘Hive’ provides a more bespoke learning experience for children who find whole-class learning difficult. Our excellent team of support assistants help children to be successful and overcome any difficulties they may have.
As a restorative school, we encourage our children to make the right choices and be reflective when things go wrong. Our staff know our children well and can offer the right support at the right time. We value the strong relationships we have with our families and have an ‘open door’ policy so that parents/carers can resolve any issues.
