St Mary’s Primary School in Timsbury and St Mark’s Secondary School in Bath are the latest schools to announce that on the 1st May 2020, they have joined the Midsomer Norton Schools’ Partnership Multi Academy Trust (MAT).
Approved by the Secretary of State for Education, this conversion will allow the Schools to have more control over their day to day operations within the support network offered by the MNSP MAT. The partnership now operates Critchill All Through School, 17 primary schools and 7 secondary schools all located across BANES, Mendip and North Somerset local authorities.
