Queen Katharine Academy (QKA) has a strong ethos of community and collaboration, and has worked hard to understand and support its own Gypsy-Roma community as well as collaborating with other organisations locally, nationally and internationally to share good practice and raise awareness.    

QKA founded a regional EAL hub to share best practice and provide regular training and links for stakeholders to access support with Roma education. Partnering with key organisations, including the East of England Local Government Association and Compas Charity, it has hosted training and informative workshops for education, healthcare and community organisations as well as developing a variety of student projects to raise aspirations and provide equity for young Roma.
