MAT Growth Survey 2022

In 2020-21 we published our sector insight report, A Growing Philosophy: How are Multi-Academy Trusts developing their operating models through centralisation?, drawing on interviews with MAT Chief Executives, Chief Operating Officers and Chief Financial Officers.

Now, at the halfway point of 2021-22, it is clear that greater academisation, growing MATs – some through an increase in merger approvals – will be a major part of the sector landscape in the next 12-18 months. The expectation around a process for eventually moving to a system where all schools are in a MAT leads us to want to develop a further sector insight report.

At this time we want to delve deeper into the appetite for centralisation within Trust finance/operations and whether GAG/financial pooling will be looked at to help maximise the support that growing MATs can offer their schools. Or indeed whether this potential growth and the need to be an ‘attractive home’ for schools who are looking to join a MAT, is actually impacting the strategies that might have otherwise been employed.

We have now launched The MAT Growth Survey 2022, and are seeking Trust Chief Executives, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Operating Officers to share their perspectives with us.

Four MAT trends to watch out for in 2022

There is a clear pathway emerging towards greater academisation and the growth of MATs in 2022. Here at IMP Software, we want to explore further the appetite for centralisation within Trust finance/operations and whether GAG/financial pooling will be looked at to help maximise the support that growing MATs can offer their schools. Or whether this potential growth, and the need to be an ‘attractive home’ for schools who are looking to join a MAT, is actually impacting the strategies that MAT finance leaders will deploy in 2022.
