Join Us

Are you thinking of joining us?

Our Trust is built around autonomy for our family of schools to allow Heads and local governing bodies to make decisions in the best interests of their pupils, underpinned by highly effective challenge and support from the central team. 

We work with integrity in all we do and in partnership with our schools. 

With Tilian you retain your identity and ethos.

The Tilian Partnership of schools became a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) on 1st August 2016

Tilian currently consists of ten schools:

Each school is led and managed by a Headteacher.

We believe that each school should have its own ethos and it is important that the Head together with the School Governance Committee (SGC) make the decisions that are in the best interests for their pupils.

Our scheme of delegation is written to ensure that there is flexibility to suit the needs of each school. We believe that effective schools should have the benefits of a MAT without losing their autonomy. 

Joining The Tilian Partnership of Schools

We want great schools to join us and would welcome a discussion with Heads and Governors interested in joining our MAT. If you are demonstrating the qualities of a good or outstanding school, we can give you the assurance of a MAT whilst you maintain significant autonomy with only a small financial contribution to the MAT.
