I hope the information available gives you a real understanding of who we are, what the trust has been established to achieve and how much progress we have made to date.
In 2010, when Trinity Academy Halifax (TAH) opened in Calderdale, the plan was to address a decade of underperformance at secondary school level. Since then the academy has been rated as ‘outstanding’ twice. It has also established Trinity Institute of Education (formerly Trinity Teaching School Alliance) and the West Yorkshire Maths Hub, both of which have helped to raise pupil performance in hundreds of schools across the country.
In 2015 Trinity MAT was established. It now contains ten academies covering from nursery stage through to post-16, including two brand new secondary schools that opened in September 2021, plus a further new secondary free school planned in the near future. The MAT has seen numerous educational changes but one thing has remained constant. We know what works, and so we have formed a group of like-minded schools to make a positive difference on a wider scale. The more young people we can support, the better. That is as complicated as we allow it to become.
Our Church of England MAT is open to schools of all faiths and none. If you would like to know more about it, I would warmly welcome you to contact me for more information.
