Join Us

Joining The James Montgomery Academy Trust


Who can request to join?

  • Any South Yorkshire primary school that shares our vision and wishes to become an academy

  • Any South Yorkshire primary school that wants to have greater autonomy and also benefit from membership in a stable group of academies that support each other for the common good of their children

  • Any South Yorkshire primary school that wants to be part of a family where actively shared best and next practice helps all to succeed and the best to excel

Directors will conduct a risk analysis following a request from a primary school

This analysis will look into the stability and needs of the school and whether the ethos of the school is compatible with the Trusts and/or can JMAT offer the support the school requires.
