About Us

Moor End Multi Academies Trust is an exempt charity and a not for profit organisation.  The Trust operates as a multi academy trust and in that respect is the employer across all the academies in the partnership.  A multi Academy Trust is simply a number of academies who agree to work together within an overarching trust body with a remit to co-ordinate matters of common interest referred collectively by the Governing Bodies.

Moor End Multi Academies Trust has been developed to allow Moor End Academy to work formally in partnership with other academies, pre-schools and other organisations.
