Lincroft join CMAT

We are delighted to announce that Lincroft Academy is now officially part of the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) family of schools.

This follows the merger of Sharnbrook Academy Federation with CMAT which officially came in to place on September 1st 2021.

Being part of CMAT will ensure Lincroft Academy can continue to provide the best possible opportunities and a high-quality learning environment for our pupils. Our teachers and staff will also benefit from strong networks and career training opportunities.

Andrew Hencken, Principal at Lincroft Academy, said: “It has been a pleasure working with the CMAT team so far and we are truly excited at the possibilities joining a larger regional multi-academy trust will bring for us. We are also looking forward to sharing our best practice with other schools and working together to provide the best possible education for our students.

“The new partnership will allow significant investment to transform areas of the Lincroft Academy site. We have already opened some of these revamped facilities and classrooms following work over the summer.”

CMAT currently operates 24 schools across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire.
