Haltwhistle Academy

Wise Academies - Mixed MAT Consultation Document


WISE Academies is a successful Multi Academy Trust operating throughout the North-East of England including Sunderland, Newcastle upon Tyne and Northumberland.

This booklet outlines our proposal to making a significant change by amending the MAT constitution to allow Church of England schools to join WISE Academies. This would become known as a Mixed MAT.

This consultation exercise will run from Friday
24th May 2019 until Friday 28th June 2019. This document sets out the proposal and how interested partiescan contribute to the consultation process.

We very much look forward to working closely with you as we take our vision forward into the future.

Important notice to local businesses


We have been made aware that a publishing company is approaching local businesses to ask for sponsorship of PSHE books (anti-social behaviour, drug use, bullying etc) on the schools behalf. We understand that this company is using high pressure sales techniques, but refuses to provide any company details.

Please be aware that neither Wise Academies Trust nor the Haltwhistle Schools have authorised this company to contact local businesses on our behalf.

We are proud of our positive relationship with the local businesses in Haltwhistle, and whilst we obviously welcome local support, want to avoid anyone being misled or pressured by this company.

Commencement of Listening Period for Haltwhistle Re-organisation

Following the closure of our consultation period which ended on 3rd December 2018, we have received initial approval from the Secretary of State for the closure of Haltwhistle Middle Academy and to extend the age range of Haltwhistle First Academy. Approval was received on 11th March 2019 for practical changes to be made to the Haltwhistle provision with effect from 1st September 2019….
