About the employer

Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) was formed in 2011 to deliver more widely on that clear vision to provide high quality and dynamic education for all at the heart of the communities we serve. Our steady growth since then reflects our commitment to the communities we serve and our track record of success.

Our family now consists of eight secondary schools and one upper school. The trust is due to open 2 secondary free schools in the coming years and is also the approved sponsor for a Greater Peterborough UTC (expected to join us in June 2021). The trust operates five primary academies and one junior academy, with the latest becoming part of the family in January 2021. We are delighted to be working with the Sharnbrook Academy Federation on the transfer of their 2 secondary and 3 primary schools into CMAT prior to the 2021-22 academic year.

In 2020, we were proud to open our first special school, Martin Bacon Academy in Northstowe, which was joined at the start of 2021 by The Harbour School in Cambridgeshire. Our original vision of an all-through, all-inclusive trust was achieved. It only took nearly 14 years! At the start of the next academic year over 14,000 students will attend a CMAT school.

We operate within a relatively close geographical area to enable the sharing of expertise and the easy direction of capacity to support. Our defined area is of operation is 20 miles around Cambridge and Peterborough, and the main communication routes between.

Students thrive in CMAT academies as a result of the implementation of our values, our successful and proven systems and our commitment to valuing people. We are among the highest performing multi-academy trusts in the country for student progress. No CMAT academy has ever undergone an Ofsted inspection resulting in anything other than an improved outcome. Our academies are well-run and our staff benefit from excellent access to professional development.

Our commitment to the education system goes beyond just our own academies. We maintain a very close mutually supportive relationship with the Cambridge Primary Education Trust (CPET), and with other MAT partners through the Cambridge Teaching Schools Network (CTSN) and the Whole Education network. We operate The Cambridge Partnership, one of the largest initial teacher training providers in the East, and Leadership East further strengthens our capacity and commitment to professional development. We also provide support to a number of other trusts and academies.

CMAT exists to provide, support, and champion high-quality education at the heart of local communities. As members of the CMAT family, academies aim to unite their pupils, families, and other local stakeholders around this common purpose to share experience and resources, to improve standards and to maximise its contribution to the wider community.

We hope that you will choose to apply to become part of our family.
