Chief Executive Officer
Chief Executive Officer of the Wessex Academy Trust – Mike Foley
Welcome to the Wessex Multi-Academy Trust.
You are probably interested in finding out about what we do and how we set about providing the best possible education for all young people attending one of our schools. Therefore, we have tried to give you a feel for what it means to be a learner in the Wessex MAT and to explain what is important to us.
Learning is at the heart of what we do – it is everything. We want to encourage a love of learning for life, and everyone involved in Wessex will play a part in making that happen. We want young people to learn from each other together a rich diversity of experiences; we provide a breadth of opportunities so they can find their own special skill or talent; we talk to them about ‘unlocking potential’ rather than ‘reaching potential’ because we don’t want young people to set any limit on what they can achieve.
We like the concept of working within a family of schools. We believe schools achieve most when they work together, sharing expertise and best practice. Everyone benefits – those that are receiving support and those providing it. Schools working together can achieve savings and efficiencies and maximise the use of specialist services. Staff have more opportunities for progression and development and the security of knowing that help is readily available. School improvement happens when you work as part of a larger team with the same values and ambition.
Thank you for your interest.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion - Partnership Pledge
In our schools
We hold up a mirror in order to see the diverse faces and families before us, to think about where equity for each person is and to achieve their inclusion in all aspects of school life. We are aware of privilege and disadvantage throughout our schools.
In our partnership communities
We look through a window to grasp the potential for working together, to embrace each other's students, staff and ideas, and create the possibilities that lie therein.
In our world
We open the door to receive the real world in and to welcome the present. We listen, learn and observe hard; we send out diverse school life to inspire, to change, to model.
