Sir Jonathan North to become part of Multi Academy Trust (MAT)

Governors are proposing that Sir Jonathan North becomes an academy and subject to due diligence, joins with The Lionheart Academies Trust as part of their Multi-Academy Trust (MAT).

The Lionheart Academies Trust is currently made up of a family of five schools led by Beauchamp College in Oadby.

The Government has made clear its intention for schools to become academies by 2022 and in particular for schools to organise themselves within groups.  As their budgets are reduced, local authorities are also reducing the services that they have available to schools.  Making this change means we can develop in partnership with another outstanding school.  As a local school, we will continue our good working relationship with Leicester’s local authority.

As part of this process, there will be a formal consultation and a meeting for you to ask any questions about this change and we will inform you about this shortly.
