Sherborne Area Schools' Trust
SAST welcomes enquiries from all schools of any or no faith and of any age range. The shared values and vision is critical to the success of the partnership and schools wishing to join will be expected to buy into and demonstrate commitment to them. The Governance structure has been constructed to meet the requirements of voluntary aided Church of England schools.
The schools within the MAT recognise their moral duty to support other schools. All schools expressing an interest in joining the MAT will be subject to a due-diligence evaluation in order that the MAT understands the contribution the school would make to the MAT and the support needs of the school. There will need to be a thorough evaluation of effective capacity management.
Please contact Steve Hillier, Executive Head, or Nigel Rees, Chair of Trustees in the first instance. Informal conversations or discussions and or meeting with governors can be arranged as appropriate.
