Welcome to the Kite Academy Trust.
Our Multi Academy Trust (MAT) was formed in October 2015 with five local, good & outstanding schools coming together to provide the very best for all of our children, families and staff. With a clear focus on leadership, governance, teaching and learning, Cross Farm Infant, The Grove Primary, Lakeside Primary, Mytchett Primary and Sandringham Infant began collaborating at every level with the shared aim of raising standards and improving outcomes. On 1st December 2016, we welcomed Holly Lodge Primary to the Trust, followed by Wyke Primary on 1st August 2018, and Fernhill Primary on 1st June 2019. Each of our academies maintain their own voice and individuality, while playing a vital role in the Trust-wide collaboration that underpins our success; for any school joining the Trust, this collaboration and participation is essential. We have a dedicated, strong Board of Trustees who provide effective, robust support and challenge through clear and open governance, as set out in the Trust's Scheme of Delegation. I am very proud to be the CEO of a growing and evolving Trust made up of like-minded and ambitious Head Teachers, Governors, Staff and Board Members who are committed to the provision of high quality education and first class learning environments.
Our academies comprise of six primaries and two infants, along with three nursery provisions, in the Frimley, Mytchett, Ash Vale, Normandy and Farnborough areas. Our COIN Centre, at The Grove Primary Academy, has specialist provision for 14 children with specific communication needs. Each of our academies provide inclusive learning experiences, supporting every child to thrive and achieve as confident, caring, local, national and global citizens. Together, our academies have grown and developed opportunities for collaboration, with our children benefiting from an inspiring curriculum and bespoke learning experiences shared across the Trust; these include maths, science, and technology competitions, musical concerts, and sporting events. For staff, we have established robust networks for sharing knowledge, best practice and expertise. We are committed to investing in our talented staff team through the high quality professional development opportunities we provide. The development of our Central Team has been key in ensuring both efficiency and effectiveness in our support services. Led by the Executive Team, Kite Central provides HR, Estates, Finance and IT support to our academies. In this time of rapid change, our collaborative, supportive ethos has ensured our success as we continually strive to provide the very best opportunities for our children.
I look forward to an exciting future!
