The Cornerstone MULTI-academy trust
The Cornerstone Multi-Academy Trust (TCAT) in East Devon is a forward-looking, agile MAT where like-minded schools can collaborate and develop in a local, supportive learning environment with distinctive, extended curriculum opportunities.
Broadclyst Community Primary School, which became one of the first Academies in the UK in 2010, was the first school in the Trust, and Westclyst Community Primary School opened in September 2016. In addition, the Trust is in a management partnership with Ottery St Mary Primary School, working to share best practice to serve the local community, and has been selected to open an additional primary school in the Monkerton area in 2018.
Also part of the Trust is the Cornerstone Teaching School, providing teacher training, professional learning, leadership development and school-to-school support at both primary and secondary levels.
