The Kings Education Trust opened as a MAT (Multi Academy Trust) on February 1st 2018. Our overarching aims are:
The Kings Education Trust is a VA (Voluntary Aided) MAT but will welcome schools of all categorisations to join the Trust. Each school within the Trust / MAT brings its own individuality and identity. The Trust celebrates the diversity and contributions of all its schools. Church schools and non-church schools can join the MAT. The only requirement is a collective agreement to work together to promote an education for all our children that stands out.
Our plan is to develop the MAT over the next few years, to ensure that the MAT growth is beneficial to all the schools and sustainable. We intend to initially form local partnerships within a close radius of Great Kingshill. Staff, pupils and governors should be able to travel between schools easily.
The Trust will broker project management support on behalf of the joining school during the conversion process and provide additional capacity and support throughout. Having been through the process, practical ongoing school-to-school support can be offered at whatever level is required by the joining converter or sponsored academy.
We believe that ‘Together we are stronger.’ The Trust will establish strong collaboration between the schools and school leaders with the aim of mutual support and collaborative strength.
