We did it: Multi Academy Trust of the Year for 2024!

We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious title of Multi Academy Trust of the Year 2024! 

This recognition is a testament to the incredible dedication of our whole Trust community, including our students, families, volunteers, and all our amazing colleagues. 

We are truly grateful for the hard work and commitment that has led to this achievement. 

We beat off over 1,000 other trusts who are members of the Confederation of School Trusts (CST), the organisers of these Awards for Excellence.

In particular, we have done extraordinarily well to beat some of the very biggest trusts in the country.

The Chair of our Board of Trustees, Dr Donald Graham, has issued this quote:

"Winning the MAT of the Year award is a fantastic achievement that recognises the hard work of our staff, children, parents, trustees, governors, and the communities we serve.“           

“Our journey has been about breaking down barriers, driving up standards, and empowering families and individuals through innovation, dedication, and a deep understanding of local needs.”

“Marino and the whole team at North Star have an unshakable conviction in the power of education to transform lives."

We were also finalists in the Community Trust of the Year category but alas just fell short to pick up that award.

Let's continue to inspire our students to believe in themselves and reach their full potential.

There is so much more work to do as we continue to put children at the heart of everything.
