Growing a MAT

If you are already part of a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and looking to grow, we at Stone King are well equipped to take you through the next stage, what this means and the options available to your school(s).

We have worked with some of the largest MATs and our 10 years of experience has given us the ability to provide effective, pragmatic advice on MAT development. We know what works and what doesn’t work.

We have a deep understanding of the education sector and the capacity to deliver that knowledge quickly when required. 

We also provide an opportunity for our MAT clients to come together to share current thinking and best practice. Our advice is always proactive and we pride ourselves on excellent client care.

Every MAT is unique. We understand the process of the different multi academy structures and what is involved including governance decisions and responsibilities and we can advise on what the best option will be for your school(s).

We will allocate a specific team to your MAT conversion to ensure you know who you are dealing with, always with a partner in overall charge. We will prepare checklist and timelines to ensure that deadlines imposed by DfE are met so as to ensure that your conversion happens smoothly, and on schedule. 

We know that schools want clarity and certainty on their legal spend for conversion, and we will always be up front with you on fees, and we will look to give you fixed costs wherever possible.
