Palladian Academy Trust

On 1st July 2016 we became a member of the Palladian Academy Trust (PAT) and in the following  months several other local schools joined us. The new multi-academy trust (MAT) is a group of like-minded local schools - all academies – that have chosen to work together in partnership for the benefit of our children’s education. The Trust – a group of geographically close secondary, primary, infant and junior schools - builds on existing good practice and collaborative work. It seeks to retain the ethos and identity of each school while enjoying and exploring the benefits of partnership.

An Executive Leadership Group meets regularly.  This is comprised of the headteachers of each school with Jo Marsh- once Business Director of Ralph Allen School - appointed as Chief Operating Officer.  Each one of the headteachers brings a wealth of experience to the group and is passionate about the learning of the young people in their care.  

The Palladian Academy Trust is a community of more than three thousand pupils and staff who work in our schools, and there is enormous potential for coming together as a community to provide enriched learning opportunities for every member of the Trust.

Why the name ‘Palladian Academy Trust’?

The Palladian Bridge in Prior Park is a local landmark and since bridges connect people, the group felt this was a very appropriate emblem. The new logo for the Trust reflects this.

About MATs

A MAT is a group of schools governed by one trust and a single board of directors. The board is responsible for decisions relating to how each academy is run, from curriculum to staffing.

Each of the academies within a MAT has a school governing body to which it delegates some of its functions, although the MAT remains overall accountable.
