The department first received information on the financial difficulties experienced by the University of Chester Academies Trust in July 2016. The budget forecast report showed a financial deficit for the year ahead resulting in a cumulative deficit at 31 August 2017. The Education and Skills Funding Agency commenced intervention, however the financial position continued to deteriorate, and as a result a Financial Notice to Improve warning letter was issued in February 2017.
