Castle Park School converted to an academy on 1 April 2016. It is currently the only school in the Kendal Primary Multi Academy Trust (KPMAT).
An academy is an independent state school that is run as a charitable trust through a local Governing Body. It is funded directly by the Government and is no longer run by Cumbria County Council.
An academy has more freedom to make decisions about how to provide the best education for its pupils than a maintained school in relation to both the curriculum and financial matters.
Kendal Primary Multi Academy Trust is an exempt charity and a company limited by guarantee. It is registered in England and Wales under the Company Number 9996478.
Further information about the Trust can be found on the Companies House website, on this website or by contacting the Company Secretary.
Kendal Primary Multi Academy Trust has three Members and a Board of Directors. There is also a local Board of Governors for Castle Park School.
Further information about the Board of Governors at Castle Park School can be found on the Castle Park School website under the Governance section.
