Don’t create monopolies of ‘mega-MATs’, government warned

The government has been warned against establishing “monopolies” of mega-MATS as new figures show almost 200 trusts have been given approval to merge.

Analysis of headteacher board meeting minutes show at least 190 trusts were given approval to merge in the 18 months from August 31, 2017.

Although many involved single-academy trusts joining larger trusts, more than one in five (43) were mergers of trusts with multiple schools.
