Academy Guidance

Multi-Academy Trusts

The Diocesan Board of Education has a well-developed Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) strategy for its family of schools and academies. Our model enables both Church and Community schools to be partners and supports Christian ethos whilst fully respecting and promoting the individual identity of Community schools. There are a number of MATs which Church schools/academies may join subject to DBE consent and consent from the Regional Schools Commissioner. Please read the DBE’s MAT Strategy document below or contact Carolyn Lewis
