Friars-Academy-2022-84

I am very pleased to welcome you to this section on Friars Multi Academy Trust (MAT). The Better Together Learning Trust came into being in September 2017 and has a vision to become an acknowledged leader in the provision of inclusive education. The Better Together Learning Trust currently consists of Friars Academy and Chelveston Road School, which opened in September 2021.

The Directors, governors and staff who work within Better Together Learning Trust are very passionate about the education and life chances that we provide for our young people.

This investment has resulted in a highly successful track record for Friars Academy and we are determined to replicate this success in Chelveston Road School. During our relatively brief time as a Multi Academy Trust we have developed fruitful partnerships with local organisations and groups and we are always keen to see how partnerships can be developed for the benefit of our students and the community.

Likewise, there are always opportunities for individuals to become involved in our work and we would welcome approaches from people who think they could serve as a governor or director.

Chair, Better Together Learning Trust
