Eden Academy Trust

Informal collaboration

In April 2021, the Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson announced that the government are setting up a process whereby schools can temporarily partner with a strong multi-academy trust.


“We are also developing an idea that originated with some of our leading trusts, which makes it easier for maintained and stand-alone schools to explore the benefits of joining a strong trust.

Schools can ‘try before they buy’ and see for themselves, first-hand, what being part of a strong trust involves.

We are setting up a process for them to temporarily partner with a strong trust, to experience the benefits that being part of a trust would offer them, their pupils, and their wider school communities.”

Education Secretary, Gavin Williamson, 28th April 2021
