Queen Mary’s College was granted academy status by the Secretary of State for Education, Justine Greening, as of 1 October 2017. The College is part of a multi-academy trust, The North Hampshire Education Alliance, which also came into being on this date.
QMC believes that it has a responsibility not only to those who are enrolled or work at the College, but also to all members of the local community. This is summed up in the College’s mission, ‘Investing in Individuals to Build Better Futures’. Forming a multi-academy trust is the clear next step in delivering this mission, enabling QMC to work even more closely with local schools to deliver high quality education that raises student aspirations, and that it is firmly aligned with our value of inclusion irrespective of prior attainment.
The aim of the North Hampshire Education Alliance is to work with our partners to ensure that all young people in Basingstoke have access to the highest quality education and can make the best possible progress regardless of background or circumstances.
