Discovery Multi Academy Trust

Discovery Multi Academy Trust Trust is a multi academy trust, with the express aim of supporting the academies for which it acts. We currently support three primary academies across the Plymouth area.

We were set up in September 2016 between Oakwood Primary Academy, Weston Mill Community Primary Academy and Beechwood Primary Academy.

The MAT has one Local Advisory Board, which is responsible for teaching and learning across the three schools, providing support and challenge. The Trust has a separate Board of Trustees, which is responsible for the strategic management of the Trust. A key part of the Trust is its desire to work with our local communities which we serve.

Our academies work together on a number of projects to develop children's learning and staff training and this will increase in the future. The MAT has STEM lab based at Beechwood Primary Academy and is developing provision so that the MAT becomes a STEM centre of excellence for primary in the city of Plymouth. There are a number of exciting projects in the pipeline to promote this exciting initiative.
