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 September 2016, although temporarily based on the BCPS site. In addition, the Trust is in a management partnership with Yeo Valley Primary School, working to share best practice to serve the local community. Yeo Valley Primary School will shortly be joining the Cornerstone Academy Trust as one of its schools. We have been selected to open an additional primary school in the Monkerton area in 2020.
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.
