CEO Welcome

Welcome to Amethyst Academies Trust and thank you for looking at our website.

We are very proud of our Trust: our Trustees, Staff and governors work relentlessly in collaboration to ensure our children and young people have an exceptional education.

Our family of schools came into fruition as a natural development of positive relationships built between neighbouring schools in the local area. We continue to work in partnership with all schools in the locality. We believe that collaboration is the key to a successful education system.

All Schools within our MAT have the commitment to share their ideas, their expertise and their unique experiences, so that children and staff can learn, develop and grow together.

We take collective responsibility for our children and young people; pooling our energy to find solutions to problems that arise and removing barriers that may prevent success.

As the Chief Executive Officer, it is my role to oversee the teams and strategies the MAT uses to ensure that we are consistently delivering the highest quality teaching and learning and operate with effectiveness.  We are delighted that all schools within Amethyst Academies Trust have been graded at least good by Ofsted. Our aspirational culture ensures that we work tirelessly to support and challenge our children and young people to be the very best that they can be.

We are stronger together in our pursuit of excellence.

Please contact us if you wish to discuss any aspect of joining us as a parent, pupil, member of the team, or as a school looking to join a collaborative MAT that can support you on your journey to becoming exceptional. I look forward to welcoming you into our family.

Nicola Licata CEO

It is these values that are demonstrated through our journey to date and underpin the unequivocal motivation of the schools who have chosen to join our family. Our values have remained at the heart of all we do.
