Welcome to the MAT / Governors' Area of the website.
In January 2012 an agreement was put in place that confirmed the Diocese of Bath & Wells to be the sponsor for any church school within the diocese requiring a sponsored academy solution. The Bath & Wells Multi Academy Trust was established to support that process and the schools that wish to convert to an academy sponsored by the Bath & Wells MAT.
The purpose of the MAT is to secure rapid and sustained improvement for every academy it sponsors. The MAT will enable schools to work together, share expertise and maximise resources. Our vision is for a family of Bath & Wells academies that offers a great learning experience for every child.
The MAT seeks to ensure the best possible educational outcome for all children. The MAT believes that every child has the right to a good education and this will be achieved within a distinctively Christian context, valuing each child as an individual and enabling them to discover and develop their God given gifts.
As academies within the MAT develop and improve, they will be expected and required to share their journey, skills and expertise with other Bath & Wells academies. The MAT will encourage and nurture the dissemination of good practice, fostering a self-sustaining culture of aspiration for educational excellence across all schools and exemplifying Christian values in every area.
