With a record of excellent feedback in previous Ofsted reports and due to our on-going work with the DfE and EFA across the Trust, we are pleased to offer bespoke services.

Established in 2014, the Fairfax Multi-Academy Trust (FMAT) has a belief that is resonated throughout; education is the bedrock for a successful and fulfilling life. Ultimately, it aims to prepare each and every student to succeed in a 21st Century workplace and have the skills and competencies to do this. The curriculum underpins the Trust’s ethos and creativity, innovation and mastering of the basics; reading, writing, communicating and mathematics. In order to ensure that each student’s individual experience is as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, the basics must not be forgotten. All of our students are expected to demonstrate excellence in punctuality, behaviour, uniform and respect for one another.
