Join Our Trust

Helping all schools

We are a Cheshire based multi-academy trust.  The infrastructure of the Trust will allow our schools to focus on effective teaching and learning and provide interaction and mutual support with like-minded colleagues.

Membership of Chancery Multi Academy Trust also brings:

  • A flexible scheme of delegation for the LGB to continue to lead and manage the school;
  • A chance to generate income and lead on school improvement by offering school-to-school support;
  • Continuing professional development for all staff;
  • An opportunity for head teachers to join an executive committee to shape the working of the Trust;
  • Stability in a fast-changing educational landscape;
  • Access to shared services and economies of scale.

The behaviours we expect to see of all schools joining the trust:

  • Children at the heart of all decisions made
  • Strong and capable leadership
  • A focused determination to deliver excellent outcomes for all pupils
  • Interacting with colleagues with respect and trust
  • A commitment to continuous improvement through the development of expertise

Due Diligence

Once a school formally requests to explore joining Chancery MAT, a reciprocal due diligence procedure will take place around the following themes: 

  • Standards and track record 
  • People and leadership 
  • Financial sustainability
  • Governance
  • Risk 
  • Vision & growth plan 

    A detailed checklist will be followed in order to ensure rigorous due diligence is completed prior to any final decision.
