Joining our MAT

The Grand Union Trust was created to provide  self-determining, self-improving primary schools supported by a network of quality assured services that keep them legal, financially robust and continually improving. Whilst we are more robust in our expectations of improvement in our schools, we allow our schools and their local governing bodies to choose their own paths to success.

We do not mandat curriculum, uniform, length of school day or management structure. Our model starts with the school and its unique context.

  • We expect all our schools to actively support each other and to share emergent and best practice for everyone’s benefit
  • We want each of our schools to assert and celebrate its distinctive identity within this community of schools

Together we make the difference
