Welcome to the Medway Anglican Schools Trust

Medway Anglican Schools Trust (MAST) was formed on 1 September 2015, as a group of three founder member Church of England schools who share the purpose and principles below. In January 2019 the Trust welcomed a fourth school to join this shared purpose. The aim of the trust is to provide an outstanding education for our children through co-operation and collaboration while retaining the unique ethos of each school.

Purpose of the MAST:

  • To improve outcomes for all pupils by promoting outstanding education across member schools to support and sustain high standards
  • Supporting each school in its individual vision
  • Sharing best practice to face the challenges of the future in a local context
  • Offering support to primary schools facing challenge, within the capacity of the group


  • MAST will be locally based for primary schools both Church schools and Community schools
  • Each school maintains its own individual autonomy and therefore its distinctive ethos and character
  • All schools will recognise that MAST is underpinned by its Christian ethos and will support that ethos
  • Every school will contribute to the development and effectiveness of the trust
  • There will be an openness and honesty between schools and willingness to share data, self-evaluation and financial information
  • MAST embraces effective partnerships with other educational institutions and groups
