Thomas Telford Multi Academy Trust (TTMAT) was established in September 2017 and currently consists of three secondary schools; Madeley Academy, Sandwell Academy and Walsall Academy.
TTMAT has a unique flat management structure that provides the Headteachers’ of each Academy with the autonomy, independence and accountability to take full responsibility for running their Academy. TTMAT has established a small management team that has been set up to provide advice and support and ensure that through effective communication and collaboration opportunities to work together serve the collective efforts to further raise standards.
The key aim for TTMAT is to provide academic environments where students have the opportunity to achieve their personal best and where individual talents, in all forms, can be maximised. Students will enjoy conditions that enable them to be successful and confident learners who make progress. Each Academy will offer a broad curriculum that includes the national curriculum and opportunities to specialise in certain fields, such as Business, Physical Education, Science and Technology. In the post-16 phase, a broad spectrum of vocational and academic options will be available to suit all abilities and wide-ranging ambitions giving students the best possible conditions from which they can secure their chosen pathways to future employment.
