Our current plans to grow the trust are focused on finding schools with similar values and principles to join us as strong partners. We believe that schools joining in this way would reap many benefits from the collaboration and would also enhance the capacity of the trust. This would not be a loss of control or status for heads or governors, but in fact an opportunity to take control at a critical time of change in the wider organisation of schools. We would welcome a discussion with any school who might be interested in joining us in this early but exciting stage, as we shape and develop our multi academy trust.
The National Governors Association now provides information about the benefits of working in formal collaborations and the need for schools to be in control of their own destiny. Please see guidance paper at bottom of page.
Any school wishing to join the MAT can be fully supported through the legal process by our partners at Hill Dickinson. If you wish to contact anyone from the Central Team please complete an enquiry form.
