Possible MAT Expansion

Community Schools Trust is pleased to announce that we are in discussion with The Cumberland School about them joining the Trust. We are confident that our schools share common values and a commitment to Newham children. If successful, this expansion of the MAT will bring increased opportunities to share good practice and further improve life chances for students. We will update our website with future developments.
