The HISP MAT was formed as of January 2020 starting with Thornden School. In July 2020 Portswood and Tanners Brook joined the MAT.  As a MAT we aim to ensure that our schools have strong and talented leadership and staff, who in turn will ensure that the young people who are in each of the schools have access to excellent education, support and wider opportunities.

Our focus is to support schools to be strong within their communities as well as playing a part in their community. Being part of this MAT will ensure that schools have the wider access to colleagues and partnerships, designed to support and challenge schools, ensuring young people thrive and are ready for each phase of their education.

Academic outcomes are important and schools, Academy Committees and Trustees will have an active role in ensuring that opportunities and outcomes are strong.
