Welcome

Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust was incorporated in March 2011 to deliver and promote ‘high quality and dynamic educational provision at the heart of the community'. It was founded by the Governors and Trustees of Swavesey Village College, an outstandingly successful and innovative secondary foundation school 8 miles west of Cambridge.

CMAT is a multi-academy trust, whose first academy is Swavesey Village College which converted to academy status 1st April 2011. In March 2011, Ofsted concluded that 'Swavesey is outstanding in every respect' - awarding the school Outstanding in all 27 categories. The school is a National Support School and Accredited Academy Sponsor.

From 1st April 2010, Swavesey ran Orton Longueville School in Peterborough under a National Support School contract with Peterborough City Council. This was very successful and therefore the City Council  selected CMAT to run the replacement academy. Orton Longueville School closed with effect from 31st August 2011, and the Nene Park Academy opened on 1st September 2011.  Since this point achievement, student numbers and community confidence have risen dramatically.  The Academy has formed a unique relationship with Peterborough United FC.  NPA moved into their new £15 Million state of the art home in September 2013.
 
From January 2013, the Trust entered into a similar School Improvement and Leadership SLA with Cambs County Council to the one previously used in Peterborough to provide support to the Manor School in Cambridge.  In 2011-12, The Manor was the 8th worst performing school in the country on the 5 A*-C including English and Maths measure.  After intense support, results doubled in 2013.  CMAT now also sponsor the replacement school: North Cambridge Academy.  Final design and planning is currently being undertaken for the proposed £10.5 Million rebuild of the academy which is due to commence in February 2014.
 
In July 2013, CMAT was selected by Governors as the chosen sponsor of the West Town Primary School in Peterborough.  It is hoped that they will join the CMAT family in April 2014.
 
CMAT are also members of the Proposer Group for the Stamford Free School project which has just been awarded £10k of support from the New Schools Network.  If plans are successful, this exciting venture will open in 2015 as part of CMAT.
 

Swavesey's previous educational Trust was successful in its bid to promote the secondary school and sixth form in the new town of Northstowe through a partnership with Swavesey Village College. Despite the current delays, the Trust remains committed to establishing a town-wide 21st Century learning community, that recognises the continuity of learning from 0 – 19 as well as the significant role that schools play in new communities.
