KPMAT

Kendal Primary Multi Academy Trust

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.
