Athena Schools Trust (AST)

Consultation to become an Academy within a Multi-Academy Trust

The Governors are proposing that Guildford County School joins with 4 other local schools to form a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) called the Athena Schools Trust (AST).

Guildford County School is currently a standalone Academy, within its own Single-Academy Trust. This proposal would result in us converting to Multi-Academy Trust status and being joined by four other local schools.

The public consultation on this proposal starts on Monday 5th March and will last until Thursday, 29th March. 

The documents below explain more about what converting to an Academy will mean and more about the Athena Schools Trust.  These documents include:

There will be a public meeting at the school at 6.00 – 7.30pm on Monday, 19th March 2018 at which you will be able to ask questions or comment on any aspect of the proposed change.  In addition to ourselves and other Governors, you will also be able to meet the Headteachers of some of the other schools proposing to join the Trust, and some Athena Trustees

We would be delighted to see you at the meeting, but if you are unable to attend and would like to ask a question or comment on the proposals please email with ‘Academy/MAT Consultation’ in the subject line.  Emails should be received by 4pm on Thursday, 29th March to be recorded as part of the consultation.
