Weydon School is delighted to announce that it has started consulting with all interested parties about the formation of a Multi Academy Trust, initially with three other local schools: Farnham Heath End, The Ridgeway School and Woolmer Hill School.

The consultation is open until the 11th July 2016.  The new (WMAT) Weydon Multi Academy Trust will consist of Governors from each of the four schools creating a Board of Trustees.

Our vision will be to inspire a community of learners not just those in any one school.  Each school with contribute its own strengths and together we will build intellectual capacity and share good practice from different contexts.

Together the Trust hopes to seize the financial sustainability and efficiency agenda and increase our investments opportunities and in doing so raise standards and performance across all of the schools.

The Multi Academy Trust movement is growing rapidly across the country and as a group of schools we are keen to be part of a dynamic, forward thinking agenda.

All our schools will remain distinctive in terms of the ethos and admission criteria; however we will actively seek opportunities to work together whenever possible to ensure the best for the students in our community.
