Every Child. Every Chance. Every Day.

Welcome From the Chair

Friars MAT came into being in September 2017 and has a vision to become an acknowledged leader in the provision of inclusive education. The MAT currently consists of Friars Academy which is an academy for students aged 11 – 19 with Special Educational Needs.

In 2017 the Directors and staff at Friars MAT submitted a successful bid to the Department for Education to open a Free School in the East Northamptonshire area to meet demand for special education in the county. This Free School is planned to open in September 2021 with the name Chelveston Road School.
