academy mergers and transfers webinar - January 2017

30 January 2017

At the heart of the National Schools Commissioner’s priority to develop a structure for multi academy trust (MAT), growth is a recognition that the Department for Education (DfE) needs existing MATs to grow to secure efficiency and sustainability. This view appears to be shared by 46% of school leaders, who reported to our

School Leaders Survey that creating or expanding a school group would be a priority for them this year.

With nearly 6,000 schools now academies, some of this growth is likely to take the form of the transfer of existing academy schools between academy trusts or the merger of MATs.

In this webinar, Victoria explores:

  • drivers for academy mergers and transfers 
  • importance of effective due diligence 
  • the application process 
  • legal steps in the transfer process.
