Browne Jacobson has once again been delighted to work in partnership with the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) and the National Governance Association (NGA) on the revision of a trio of popular guidance papers focusing on ‘Taking the next steps’ when ‘Considering Forming or Joining a Group of Schools’, ‘Joining a Multi-Academy Trust’ or ‘Forming a Multi-Academy Trust’.

Launched in June 2019, the new publications acknowledge key changes that have occurred in the education landscape since the series was first published on 15 September 2015. To acknowledge the evolution of the sector, the documents were first revised in 2016 before they were redrafted this spring in collaboration with ASCL and the NGA.

The series is primarily aimed at senior leaders, trustees and governors of standalone schools (maintained schools or academies), who might be considering the future of their school or academy in a system increasingly comprising of multi-academy trusts (MATs).

The guidance contains information highlighting the different ways schools and academies can form formal partnerships that provide for a group of schools to work collaboratively. It also provides practical guidance in relation to the decision-making and implementation process so that, ultimately, schools can seek to remain in control of their destiny.
