Charitable Activities


As a Trust we are committed to raising funds for our 2018 chosen charity, MACs. We also encourage our schools to raise money for their local charities.

MACS stands for Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma Support and it is the UK’s national charity for children born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes.

To find out more about the work MACS do, please visit their website:


Graham Clifford, Head of Willow Brook, followed in the footsteps of our Founder Ange Tyler and ran the Virgin London Marathon on behalf of the Trust. All money raised went towards MACs. To see how he got on and how much he raised please visit our news story.

Founders Day

As always on this day, the focus is on community. Schools will be running a number of charity events throughout the day and the money raised will be split between local charities of the school’s choice and MACS. Please visit our news story to see the various events our schools held.
