What are School Trusts?

CST have worked with a small group of members to develop a new narrative.

It’s time we took control of the narrative. Let’s say proudly that academy trusts are education charities that run schools to give children a better future.

Let’s say, “Our trust is a group of schools working in collaboration as one entity to improve and maintain high educational standards across the group. Our trust has a single legal and moral purpose: to advance education for the public benefit.”

Let’s stop using the language of MATs and CEOs. Let’s talk about education charities, trust leaders and trustees. People who hold trust on behalf of children.

Please use the whole or parts of this new narrative to talk about your trust.
