Please keep an eye on our website for update on this and other recruitment news.

Welcome message from Mark Lees, our Interim CEO

Welcome to Falmouth Multi-Academy Trust’s website. I hope you find it helpful in finding out about our trust and the schools which are part of it.

We are a small and supportive trust of three schools in the coastal town of Falmouth in Cornwall. Our multi-academy trust was formed in 2017, however, our three schools have worked closely together for many years.

We place the best interests of children at the centre of all our decisions. Our school leaders and staff work hard to ensure a high-quality education within a caring learning environment.

Our two primary schools are King Charles CE and St Francis CE. Both schools have been judged as high performing schools that provide an excellent education for the children who attend. Our primary schools are Church of England schools and are trust actively seeks to support and develop the Christian ethos of these two schools.

Our trust is working to support the leaders of Falmouth School as it improves its leadership, management and safeguarding. Inspectors judged the teaching and standards achieved by the students at this school as good. Significant improvements have been made and are being made to this school. Our trust supports and also challenges this improvement.

Falmouth School has a thriving sixth-form college that was judged as good by inspectors.

Our trust’s senior leadership team is made up of the CEO and headteachers of our three schools. The SLT meet regularly to talk about common issues and who we can support each other. We are all held to account by our trust board and local governing bodies.

Our schools are supported by a small central services team that make sure our finances, estates and other services are well managed. They take the pressure of our school leaders so they can concentrate on teaching and learning.

I am proud to be the CEO of our trust and it is a pleasure to work alongside committed and forward-thinking leaders in all three schools. Our schools provide education from 2 to 18 years old and we welcome visitors who would like to find out more about us. Please contact our schools or MAT office for an appointment.

Once again thank you for taking an interest in Falmouth MAT.
