Who is the CMAT
St Cuthbert's Roman Catholic Multi Academy Trust is made up of a group of 8 schools including St Mary's College and 7 primary schools, St Mary Queen of Martyrs, Endsleigh Holy Child, St Vincents, St Richards, St Thomas More, St Anthonys and St Charles all working together to provide the best opportunities for every child. A core aspect of the collaborative working is to ensure good Catholic education for all, upholding the key mission of ensuring that Christ is at the centre of all of that we do.
Background to the Trust
The Trust, initially formed with the two schools of St Mary Queen of Martyrs and Endsleigh Holy Child to begin a journey to work within a close and established structure to maintain high standards of Catholic education. As part of this aim, the two schools have come together to sponsor a third school, St Vincent's in a shared journey to excellence. In January 2015 St Richard’s VC Academy joined the Trust, then in October 2017 we grew again! and now we have become a Catholic Multi Academy Trust offering exceptional education for pupils aged 3 - 19 years old.
The key strength of all of the schools is that they are all distinctive and rooted within their parish communities. We intend to maintain the distinctive nature of each of the schools whilst sharing recognised good practice across the board to build an established Trust of excellence.
Strengths and benefits
Benefits of being part of the Trust include:
Ultimately, the aim for the all the schools working together within the Trust is to develop staff at all levels within each of the schools to ensure consistently good practice is established and maintained.
