MAT criticised for gifts, hampers and alcohol purchase

An investigation into a multi academy trust which ran two failing schools has uncovered financial failings which include gifts, alcohol and hampers being purchased for staff and trustees on the trust’s charge card.

Investigators  have also questioned why the Thrive Partnership Academy Trust spent  £138,814 on branding and website design from the most expensive supplier to bid for the work.

The Department for Education has published a report today into the finance and governance at the trust 10 months after the investigation finished and after the trust has been shut down.
