Multi Academy Trust
In April 2018 the Governors proposed to form a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) known as the Four Stones MAT with Haybridge High School & Sixth Form from 1st September 2018. As you know a consultation period ran from Wednesday 25th April 2018 until Thursday 24th May 2018 and we received many useful comments, questions and suggestions. After very careful consideration, the Governors have resolved to proceed with their proposal to form a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) known as the Four Stones MAT with Haybridge High School & Sixth Form from 1st September 2018. They are excited by the opportunity of forming a MAT with Haybridge and believe that the two schools working together would benefit the students and staff in the MAT and in our wider community generally.
Our application to form a MAT with Haybridge High School & Sixth Form was considered by the local headteacher board on Thursday 12th July. I am delighted to announce that we have been given permission to proceed and we are now aiming to form the Multi Academy Trust (MAT) known as the Four Stones MAT with Haybridge High School & Sixth Form on 1st November 2018.
