A Very Warm Welcome

Community First Academy Trust (CFAT) consists of like-minded individuals, educational establishments and partners who all want the best for young people.

Our charitable trust has one single legal and moral purpose: to advance education in the public interest.

By working together our family of academies, schools and partners we will together strategically deliver long term sustainability through school to school improvement and efficiency savings that  improve the rate of progress for all our pupils across the North West of England. 

Our mission is to ensure that every child develops as a confident and competent person with the highest aspirations to be the best they possibly can be.

We hope that you will be inspired to join us on the next stages of our journey that include sharing expertise to create a group of schools that provide the very best in educational services.

Over the coming years we aim to grow the number of schools within the Trust to strengthen our school to school support and training offer.

We believe that by working totterer children reap many benefits it also enhances the capacity of the support the trust can offer. This would not be a loss of control or status for heads or governors, but in fact an opportunity to take control at a critical time of change in the wider organisation of schools. 

We would welcome a discussion with any school who might be interested in working with us in this early but exciting stage, as we shape and develop our charitable academy trust. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any further questions your may have. 

Best wishes 

Sue Darbyshire
CEO / Executive Headteacher
