Consilium Academies was approved as a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) and an academy sponsor in January 2015. The MAT was developed by Martin Shevill and Graham Soles who are now the joint Chief Executives of Consilium Academies. Currently the MAT has three academies; Buile Hill Visual Arts College in Salford, Armthorpe Academy in Doncaster and Wyvern Academy in Darlington.
Ensure every young person achieves their potential and every school improves sequentially by:
Consilium will work with schools and academies in a supportive way that does not detract from the individual identity of a school. We do not intend to impose a curriculum, a school day or a uniform on schools and academies within our MAT. Our support will be bespoke, always with the aim of providing the best opportunities to meet local needs. It is our aim to work with existing staff to create a truly outward looking and collaborative organisation.
We will operate on a commissioning/brokerage model working with a network of Teaching Schools and other schools to deploy SLEs, LLEs and NLEs (and other good and outstanding system leaders not yet designated) along with high quality associate staff to support any school or academy in challenging circumstances. We will also be working with senior HMI and Assistant Directors of LAs. Graham and Martin have a number of years experience in Headteacher and Executive Headteacher positions and also have a track record of successful school to school support and an extensive network of contacts. They have strong strategic partners to support their approach and are able to draw on a number of other specialists depending on the needs of the schools they are working with.
