Plans for the future

East Midlands Academy Trust has access to a strong network of outstanding schools and outstanding leaders and are in a great position to share good and innovative practice.

We have a strategy for sustainable growth within the region. By 2025, we aim to be one of the medium to large MATs in the region, with a mix of:

  • Primary schools
  • Secondary schools
  • All through schools
  • A University Technical College
  • A further Education college
  • SEN schools
  • An alternative education
  • Our own recruitment agency
  • A teacher training facility
  • A fundraising/commercial income function

We also aim, by 2025, to have a clearly articulated heuristic curriculum, to rank within the top 10% nationally in all indicators and to have a clearly articulated career pathway, including pay and conditions for colleagues.

Join our Trust

We are ambitious for our academies. They are mostly based in challenging educational environments and we consider that developing and leading each one of them on this new journey in partnership with us is a superb opportunity for talented and inspirational leaders who want to make an impact and create a powerful legacy.

We are very proud of our schools' academy improvement plans. We are committed to supporting all of our academies to be graded as Good at their first full inspection as an East Midlands Academy Trust academy and on a trajectory to become judged as Outstanding.

In addition to academy improvement we also ensure expertise and support in HR, finance, legal and communication/ marketing. Find out more about the support we offer here.

East Midlands Academy Trust is committed to the setting of challenging targets for the progress and attainment of our students and our academies in order to meet our core mission. In order to reach these challenging targets our expectations are that our academies will deliver consistently good and outstanding teaching, learning and leadership.
