King Charles I School became a converter Academy on 1st April 2012 and has been operating very successfully as a single academy trust (SAT) for six years. After a long period of research, deliberation and due diligence, the Governors are proposing to form a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) known as the Four Stones MAT with Haybridge High School & Sixth Form from 1st September 2018.
The Governors are excited by the opportunity of forming a MAT with Haybridge and believe that the two schools working together would benefit the students and staff in the MAT and in our wider community generally. The vision for the Four Stones MAT can be viewed here.
All information regarding our consultation process will be put here in order to ensure clarity for all those involved.
