The vision underpinning The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust (MAT) is that it will bring together a group of schools which when combined will improve the education and life chances of a larger group of students. In the current educational landscape groups of schools working together within a formal structure is the only viable and sustainable model. However, it is equally important in the MAT that each school maintains its individual ethos and distinctive features. Whilst acknowledging the many additional pressures placed upon schools, the core and defining purpose of the MAT will be to ensure that every day, every students' education is the best that it can be so that they can access university or a high-powered alternative.
The MAT will use the opportunities presented by working as a group of schools to offer a broad, balanced and inspiring subject offer at both GCSE and A level with a focus on an academic suite of subjects. We are proud of our academic ethos and the character development of teamwork, leadership, resilience and challenge that comes from teaching an academic curriculum and holding students to our high expectations. The achievement of our students is paramount but we also know all our students as individuals. We are unapologetically ambitious for every student, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. We take great pride in developing relationships between students, staff and families, in order that we can ensure that success is desirable, demanded and achievable.
We complement our academic curriculum with an extensive enrichment programme. From after school clubs to international trips, we give our students access to the cultural literacy to enable them to fully participate in adult educated life. We operate with a strict approach to discipline ensuring our students develop the habits that will be necessary to be successful independent adults. Our students are therefore a credit to us and we are very proud of their example. They are able to learn in calm, purposeful classrooms.
Education and working in the public sector are defined by moral purpose and this will be at the centre of the MAT and will strategically be defined by proportionate growth, integrity, respect for a member school’s individuality and a commitment to staff professional development and wellbeing.
The MAT will utilise the expertise at its disposal to secure additional funding but will also look for the necessary economies of scale required to ensure the MAT as a robust entity into the future. The Teaching School Hub and SCITT are pivotal in this regard enabling as they do opportunities to engage with professional development at a local and national level as well as providing high quality entrants into the profession.
The MAT recognises the rapidly changing dynamic of education and is well placed to manage and take advantage of this, offering as it does an opportunity to embrace and excel in a school-led system for the benefit of the students and schools in its care.
