Catch22 MAT


The Austen Academy is part of the Catch22 Multi Academies Trust (MAT). The Catch22 MAT is the vehicle for our sponsorship of several academies across England focusing on learners who can benefit from small, supportive alternative and special education provision. 

The Catch22 MAT Mission Statement


To enable young people to progress and succeed in sustained education, training or employment. 


We do this through high-quality teaching and learning based on effective relationships that enable the achievement of life skills and meaningful qualifications. 


We believe all children and young people have the capacity to learn regardless of their life situation. It is our role to unlock that learning potential.


We apply our methodology to open the door to learning and to re-engage excluded or marginalised young people, whose attainment has fallen behind their peers in mainstream education. We provide excellent support and opportunities for young people in special schools to achieve and progress to their full potential.
