VIDEO: Cavendish headteacher puts the case for Multi Academy Trust

Headteacher Kenny Fitzpatrick has outlined plans by Cavendish and Ratton to form a Multi Academy Trust.

The two secondary schools are in the middle of a four-week consultation on ambitious plans to convert to a Multi-Academy Trust, which would enable both schools to retain their individuality and identity, but to share resources and expertise.

The consultation began on Monday, March 10 and will finish at midnight on Friday, April 4, 2014.

Both schools have full details on their websites about the Multi Academy Trust plans. For further information see Cavendish’s website at or Ratton’s website at
