Name of Multi-Academy Trust (MAT): Inspiring Schools Partnership

Schools within MAT:        

CEO of Inspiring Schools Partnership:  Carol Hannaford


The values that underpin our MAT:
As a MAT comprising of a primary, secondary and studio school we embrace the opportunities presented to collaborate together and to eradicate disadvantage providing new experiences, progression and new career paths for all our young people and members of staff.
Teaching and learning is at the heart of all that we do together and individually. We recognise that we are all teachers and learners, regardless of age, stage, context or experience, hence every member of our MAT is valued for their contributions, their needs and their investment in our MAT becoming “better together”.

Future Intentions
We are most welcoming to partners who share our values, vision and commitment to students and the personal and professional growth of staff.
We are committed to providing the best possible learning environment for all our schools, balancing the autonomy of leaders of schools with the autonomy of the trust. We are keen to remain outward-looking and build relationships with other MATs and key stakeholders such as the Local Authority, Regional Schools Commissioner, Studio Schools Trust, Baker Dearing Trust and Ofsted.
