Barclay Academy is sponsored by the Future Academies MAT, founded by John and Caroline Nash with the aim of broadening horizons for young people across the country. Core to Future Academies’ vision is the belief that, with the right support, encouragement and opportunities, there are no limits to what students can achieve.

A MAT plays a number of roles in the life of an Academy, setting its direction, working with the leadership team to ensure that it provides the best learning environment for the students, and leading the Governing Body. The MAT is responsible for fostering progress in all areas of the school’s operation, promoting value for money and good use of public funds, and championing the Academy in the wider community.

Future Academies is a charity regulated by the Department for Education, and a company limited by guarantee 6543442. Future Academies’ registered address is Pimlico Academy, Lupus Street, London, SW1V 3AT. For more information about the Trust, our Members, Directors and key documents, visit
