To ask the Secretary of State for Education, whether there are any church schools in multi-academy trusts where less than half of the schools in that multi-academy trust are church schools.
As at 1 May 2019, there are 371 Multi-Academy Trusts (MAT) that include church schools. Of these, there are 99 MATs where church schools make up less than half of the academies within that Trust. We have identified church schools as those schools with a religious designation relating to the Christian faith. This includes Church of England, Greek Orthodox, Catholic and non-denominational Christian schools.
