Challenger Multi-academy Trust
Embrace challenge; expect excellence
The Department of Education approved the Challenger Multi-Academy Trust as a sponsor in 2014. The Challenger Trust is the charitable trust that governs the academies and serves as the legal entity of which the schools are part of. As a small trust, we operate with minimal central overheads to maximise funding direct to schools and ensure the improvement models benefit from our sophisticated knowledge of the education sector. We utilise our extensive network of educational professionals from the primary, secondary and special needs sectors, in order to support and develop the “Challenger” model in the academies.
Our mission is to create a federation of outstanding schools where every young person has the opportunity to participate in engaging and active learning experiences and achieve excellent educational outcomes. This prepares the children and young people to enter the university or employment of their choice with the confidence and aspirations to succeed.
These academies are also an opportunity for us to practice what we preach and we look forward to them becoming shining beacons of success over time.
