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.
