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 of its schools. Church schools and non-church schools can join the MAT. The only requirement is a collective agreement to work together to promote outstanding education for all our children.
Our plan is to grow the MAT to 6 schools in the next 2 years. Our priority is to ensure that the MAT growth to be local, beneficial and sustainable. We intend to 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 during the conversion process and provide additional capacity and support throughout. Having been through the process recently, 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.
