Proposed merger between Q3 Academies Trust and The Mercian Trust 

Following a period of working in strategic partnership, the Q3 Academies Trust and The Mercian Trust are proposing to form a single charitable trust (MAT).

By coming together, both MATs aim to secure and support the future of all their schools, with a common purpose of equipping students to live life to the full in pursuit of that which is good, right and true.


Both MATs believe students and staff will benefit from being part of a larger family of schools committed to increasing opportunities and improving outcomes for students in our local area.


As an important part of the planning, the trustees of both MATs are keen to hear views of parents, staff, students and other stakeholders. Therefore, they have asked Smith Gadzik Communications, an independent company, to carry out a consultation.


Please take a moment to read the Merger Proposal and Frequently Asked Questions. Once you have read them, we invite you to submit any questions you have about the proposals or give your views on the consultation using the survey below.


The formal consultation period ends on Friday 7 May 2021.
