HOW WE SUPPORT YOU

Multi-Academy Trusts

Academy21 works with Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs) to support students across their schools with high-quality education and personalised support for students in Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 5.

Trusts partner with us because we have the capacity to cope with large or sudden increases in student numbers, and our longevity as a business makes us a reliable partner for long-term agreements. Multi-Academy Trusts that partner with Academy21 benefit from:

Consistent provision across schools

All Academy21 students follow the same comprehensive core curriculum that equips them with all the skills they need to continue their education and, for those in crucial examination years, sit their exams confidently. With our experienced teachers and DfE accredited provision, you can be sure that all your students in need of alternative provision will receive the same robust approach to learning, no matter where in the country they’re located.

Broad age ranges

Academy21 offers comprehensive Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 provision that supports students from Years 7 to 11 to fully prepare for their GCSE exams or take other qualifications. Plus, our fully qualified subject specialist teachers are highly experienced in teaching students with a variety of needs. We also offer Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 5 provision via our sister school, King’s InterHigh, which is the UK’s leading online international school.

Continuous communication and training

Our customer regional teams can visit you at your premises to discuss the most suitable solutions available, guide you through the Academy21 platform, or do demos and training. But the support isn’t over once your students are enrolled: our dedicated team is always on hand to answer any queries or concerns throughout your students’ journey with us.

Additional services

We take a holistic approach to pedagogy, aiming to equip students with skills to not just succeed in their learning journeys and careers, but improve their mental and physical health and live happier lives. That’s why we offer additional academic support courses such as English as an Additional Language (EAL), Literacy, and Numeracy, as well as pastoral support courses that include anxiety management and wellbeing mentoring.
