Who are ‘CMAT’

 

 

Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust was incorporated in March 2011 to deliver and promote ‘high quality and dynamic educational provision at the heart of the community’. It was founded by the Governors and Trustees of Swavesey Village College, an outstandingly successful and innovative secondary foundation school 8 miles North West of Cambridge.

CMAT is a not for profit Trust that represents a partnership between key education partners who share a commitment to deliver the outstanding educational provision for all young people.
CMAT is a multi-academy trust, whose first academy was Swavesey Village College which converted to academy status 1st April 2011. In March 2011 Ofsted concluded that ‘Swavesey is outstanding in every respect’ – awarding the school Outstanding in all 27 categories. The school is a National Support School and Accredited Academy Sponsor.

In 2010, Swavesey was running Orton Longueville School in Peterborough under a National Support School contract. Orton Longueville School has since closed and the new Academy, Nene Park Academy opened on 1st September 2011 as part of the Trust.

 

Working together effectively, senior staff, governors, the Cambridge Meridian Academies’ Trust, and the local education authority have developed a good school in wonderful new buildings” – Ofsted, Dec 2013

 

The Trust is constantly evolving and in September 2013 the North Cambridge Academy (formerly The Manor School) became part of the trust. CMAT has recently been selected as the preferred sponsor for West Town primary school in Peterborough due for completion in April 2014.
The Trust is committed to a bespoke model of tailored support for schools that takes local context into account – it does not promote a ‘one size fits all’ approach. By working with schools, staff, governors, students and parents CMAT offers a local solution for local schools. Indeed, the outstanding dedication of our staff has been vital to what CMAT has achieved. Students and their families have also been hugely supportive of the changes, something that symbolises all that CMAT stands for: working together for the betterment of all.
