Member of Parliament for South East Cambridgeshire, Lucy Frazer, has called a second meeting for parents and carers of pupils at Ely College to give them an opportunity to meet the new college’s new sponsors.

Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT) is to take over at the college from current sponsors, CfBT Schools Trust, in July.

The meeting, on Friday May 20, is the second the MP has arranged, following a meeting last December to address issues after the college was placed into special measures by Ofsted last spring.

Mrs Frazer said: “This meeting will be a great opportunity for parents and carers of pupils at Ely College to meet the new sponsors.

“Although the school has been through a difficult time, being placed into the special measures category by Ofsted last spring, CMAT have a good record of improving schools in similar positions. It is time for us to look ahead to ensure that Ely College makes use of its full potential.”

The meeting will be chaired by Mrs Frazer, and will be attended by Ely College Principal Evelyn Forde, Chair of Governors Tricia Prichard, Chief Executive of CfBT Schools Trust Chris Tweedale, Chief Executive of CMAT Mark Woods and Regional Schools Commissioner for East of England and North-East London, Dr Tim Coulson.
