River Tees Multi-Academy Trust

We provide education and support for learners who are currently disengaged from their home mainstream provision. We have an inclusive philosophy and believe passionately in removing any barriers to learning and ensuring every learner has the opportunity to fulfil their potential through a broad and balanced curriculum personalised to every individual learner. 

In addition to RTMAT provision, our Home and Hospital Service meets the educational needs of students who are unable to access their home mainstream provision due to a range of medical needs.

This Service offers education in different settings including home tuition, short term placements, and teaching services across local hospitals and medical units. Students referred to this Service are supported through their medical practitioners and may include a range of short or long term conditions such as physical and mental health issues, short stays in hospital following an accident, chronic medical conditions, anxiety, psychosis and terminal conditions. We work in partnership with the home school, medical professionals and other agencies to provide a holistic, wrap-around service.

Local Offer


Many of our students have significant underlying special education needs, including those related to learning difficulties and disabilities, cognitive difficulties, social, emotional and mental health issues and physical disabilities. Some of these special educational needs have gone unrecognised in their previous schools. A significant number of students are identified as requiring support to make successful transitions and many require more specialist provision. Where necessary, and in consultation with parents or carers, RTMAT will submit a request for assessment for an Education, Health and Care Plan

RTMAT staff are trained and experienced in working with children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
