Academy / Multi Academy Trust (MAT) Consultation

Thank you to all the parents and staff who have attended the consultation meetings we have held this year regarding the proposal for our 5 schools to form a Multi Academy Trust (MAT). As you know, in June we received approval for the proposed MAT from the Eastern Region Headteachers’ Board and, with Governing Body final approval, the current timescale is that we hope to become a MAT on 1 December 2017.

 We obviously require a name for the MAT and thank you to all who contributed ideas. From Consultation meetings it was very clear that the preference was for a name that included Peterborough and reflected all 5 schools.  The Governors’ Steering Group, upon recommendation from the Headteachers, have agreed Peterborough Keys Academies Trust as our name, with Unlocking Potential as our strapline.

We have looked at a number of possible designs for our MAT logo, and thank you to those who contributed designs also. Click HERE to see and vote for the possible designs which will be used on our stationery and e-mails, alongside the individual schools’ logos.  Individual school uniforms will remain the decision of their respective Headteachers and Governing Bodies and will have their school logos only.  Voting will be open until Thursday 14 September. Thanks for taking part!


The Governing Body is consulting on a proposal to establish a new multi academy trust, and for our school to convert to academy status. The consultation period runs from Wednesday, April 26th to Friday, May 26th. The consultation information is published here:
