The model documents below should be used by multi-academy trusts establishing new Free Schools.

A multi-academy trust (MAT) is an organisation that runs a number of academies, which could include Free Schools, under a single charitable company.

Please note that there are 2 master model funding agreements on this page. One is for use by trusts with free schools only. The other is for use by trusts that run both academies and free schools. We have also included clauses to amend the free school SFA when using the master funding agreement for trusts that run both academies and free schools.
