National CST School Trust Report

School trusts have an important and growing role in education across England. The Department for Education White Paper, published in March 2022, confirms the strategic importance of the trust model and the need to build upon the successes of strong trusts, with the Government committed to all schools being in a trust by 2030, and all trusts to be serving 7,500 pupils or running at least 10 schools

CST and Edurio have been working together to gather reliable insights into where trusts are in their development and what their priorities and challenges are for the academic year 2022/23 and beyond. This has resulted in the first National Survey of School Trusts Report, co-authored by CST, Edurio and Professor Daniel Muijs, Dean of the Faculty of Education and Society at Academica University of Applied Sciences, Amsterdam.
