Become a Diverse Academy

Join our partnership

We recognise that academisation is not for everyone, nor necessarily is our trust. So we believe it’s critically important that, together, we ensure we are likeminded in our ambitions with any prospective school – and where aligned, we are confident we have a lot to offer.

Financial sustainability is a key concern for many schools, so our approach to growth is measured and carefully planned. Our trust is on a journey, with a target to grow steadily to around 20 to 30 academies in total across the East Midlands, over the next 3 to 5 years.

Now is a really exciting time to join us, offering you the opportunity to both influence and shape our strategic direction. Our phased approach, coupled with an established organisational structure, provides capacity for growth. The interwoven nature of our trust will ensure we achieve our vision for outstanding education for all, in which academies can benefit from economies of scale as well as access to leading expertise.

Meet our team

Whether you are a local authority maintained school, a standalone academy or a small trust within our region, we would like to hear from you. We are happy to answer any questions you might have, which we would do in an informal environment, and at a time and place of your choosing – offering you the chance to find out more about our organisation, what the process of joining a MAT could look like for you or more about our associate membership scheme.
