Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust

Stamford Welland Academy joined the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) family in September 2014. The Trust was formed with a simple and clear vision: ‘to ensure high quality education at the heart of the community.’ It also enabled Swavesey Village College (CMAT’s first sponsored school) to sponsor other academies, and help spread good education practice. Swavesey Village College is also considered to be ‘outstanding in every respect’ by Ofsted.

We truly value the success of every child and place the sharing of excellent education practice at its core. We are committed to improving the quality of education and life in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, and their immediate surroundings.

We are dedicated to maintaining our core principles and focus as we grow – sharing the success of the values that were developed at Swavesey Village College.


Each academy within the CMAT family retains their own local governing bodies, identity and individuality. The young adults who leave our care are prepared for the next stage of their education and are ready and confident to move forward as responsible, employable citizens.

Being part of the CMAT family provides students with access to a wide variety of opportunities to learn and develop their careers and experiences. Stamford Welland Academy will adopt the same processes and practices that have made others in the CMAT family among the best schools in the country.
