Join Us



Joining Vision Multi Academy Trust whether you are an outstanding, good or a struggling school, will bring rewards. The Vision Multi Academy Trust community will offer a professional home to those outstanding and good schools who wish to retain their individuality, yet benefit from sharing winning ways. For those schools who are struggling, Vision Multi Academy Trust Family of Academies will work closely with you to remodel your management processes in ways that have already been shown to bring improvement in learning outcomes for all.

The advantages of joining us will be different for each individual member. For example, a successful school will benefit from being in the VMAT professional team and having access to our full range of services, saving time and effort in order to focus on the core business of learning. (Converter academy).

A school in difficulty will benefit from using all of the professional team's improvement tools and strategies that have already proved successful at VMAT and in supported schools. This will reduce the time-consuming administrative tasks which many smaller schools with fewer staff find difficult to manage, while providing the expertise and support to concentrate on educational performance. (Sponsored academy).

Vision Multi Academy Trust welcomes contact from individual schools or groups of schools considering conversion to academy status.
We are well placed and keen to offer advice and support to schools within the Greater Manchester area. Please get in touch for an informal discussion. In the first instance, please email our CEO, Carol McLachlan, at


Associate Membership of Vision Multi Academy Trust Explained

Choosing to convert to an academy, or selecting an academy trust to work with, is a significant decision for any school. The opportunity to work with a network of like-minded schools is an exciting one but the importance of the decision can’t be underestimated. Ultimately it’s vital to ensure the right synergy is in place.

In recognition of this, we offer schools the opportunity to join us on a temporary basis through our Associate Membership.

About Associate Membership

Membership is offered to maintained schools, single academies and small MAT’s that have an interest in exploring what life is like as part of a multi-academy trust. The programme has been carefully designed to enable schools and academies to benefit from some intentional peer-to-peer, school-to-school engagement and to experience how a multi-academy trust works. Membership runs for 12 months and is limited to two schools at a time.  

Please see below for our core offer and also our associate membership offer.
