We are delighted to announce the formation of Weydon Multi Academy Trust (WMAT) on 1st April 2017.  The four member schools are Weydon, Farnham Heath End, The Ridgeway and Woolmer Hill.

The MAT is about realising the real benefits that can be achieved by joint planning, senior staff support and sharing best practice. 

CEO, Mr John Winter said;

“Our ambition is clear; to make WMAT a Trust that is outstanding both for the students that learn here but also for the staff that work here within it.

We should not, however, underestimate the core objective of our Trust which is to bring a focus and harder edge to the process of improving our schools and hence the life chances of the students we educate. We also need to understand and manage the increasing pressures facing all our staff.

Education faces significant challenges at the moment in the form of funding shortfalls, dealing with rapid change, interpreting the sometimes varying decisions of central government. This is in addition to understanding the sort of world in which our students must be able to succeed.

Our Trust, whilst maintaining the unique character of each of our schools must be able to ensure we take a collective approach to improving performance putting the students and staff at the centre of decision making criteria”.
