The Heath Family Trust

We empower our children to overcome barriers, be able to compete with the best, and shape the future

Welcome To

The Heath Family Trust

It is a pleasure and a privilege to introduce you to our Trust.

The Heath Family Multi Academy Trust was formed in 2013 and subsequently has grown to eight schools within the greater Merseyside area.

The Trust currently consists of three secondary schools and five primaries across the local authority areas of Halton, Knowsley and Sefton.

The Trust has responsibility for over 3500 children and employs over 450 staff.

The Trust is a charity and its work is overseen by members and trustees who act on a voluntary basis and receive no payment for their work. In addition, each school has its own Local Governing Body, made up of governors who are also volunteers and receive no payment. 

Our schools are inspected by Ofsted in the same way as all other state schools. We have to follow the same rules on admissions, special educational needs and exclusions as other state schools and students sit the same exams. We receive the same level of funding as other local schools and our schools do not charge fees. Our schools are part of the local authority admissions arrangements for their area and are non-selective.

As a Trust we receive funding directly from the government and our schools are therefore not under the control of the local authority. We do, however, work closely with our three local authorities and have excellent relationships with them.

Our Trust is also accountable to the Department for Education (DfE) through the Regional Director (RD). We meet with them regularly to discuss the progress of our schools as well as the Trust governance and finance to ensure we are operating effectively. Failure to do so can result in the schools in the Trust being moved to other Trusts. For more information on RDs click here.
