MAT Finance Support

Financial support as you grow.

If you are a startup MAT or have a small in house finance team, we will support you as you grow. We currently support over 45 MATs and provide flexible support depending on their size and internal resources.

Fulfilling EFA requirements whilst taking on new academies can be overwhelming if financial expertise and resources don’t keep pace.

By supporting you with a dedicated finance consultant who specialises in running MAT finances, coupled with a helpdesk staffed by finance professionals, we can plug this gap and provide on-demand support whenever you need it.

Strictly Education’s financial support team were a key partner in the successful growth and development of REAch2 Academy Trust.
