Building a Compassionate and Flourishing Church MAT


Our school leaders and teachers are involved in creating inspired futures for our children and young people.


True and sustained educational excellence can only be achieved when the need to provide a first-class education is accompanied by the need to meet the emotional, mental and vocational wellbeing of those who teach them.


Our children deserve the best.  We believe this can only be achieved when the hearts and minds of our school leaders and teachers are nurtured.


We know there are many Church Academies across the country who believe this too. That’s why we work with Church MATs to ensure their schools are characterised by:


– Open, constructive and honest communication

– High levels of emotional resilience and capacity for overcoming challenges

– Humanity, compassion and a deep commitment to faith and the MAT values

– A love for learning in which personal transformation is possible

– Strong, supportive and nurturing relationships


If this is what you want for your church MAT, then please do get in touch today…



What do Church MAT Headteachers say about us?

“I cannot stress too much the difference that a professional coach can make. There is a difference between a listening ear and someone who is a trained professional able to help you process what is going on in your professional life. That ability to facilitate self-reflection and analysis is powerful in supporting more effective leadership. Finding a coach who resonates with your values and sense of moral purpose is the key to getting this relationship right. That coaching relationship can be truly transformative and in my opinion is money well spent.”

Sian Hampton

CEO, Archway Learning Trust

“As an experienced Head teacher, I was used to the busy school day, evenings and occasional weekends, but coaching enabled me to develop a greater self awareness and work life balance. The thought process and skills around addressing issues that I learnt through coaching also remains with me and means that I can fulfil my vision as a Head teacher. I am energised, confident and committed to using and promoting coaching with my staff team. It was a great privilege to work with Integrity Coaching- an experience I will always be grateful for and will never forget.”

Ann Dwulit

Executive Head teacher, St Luke’s CE Primary School and Moreland Primary School, Islington

“Coaching showed me that the issues I was facing in my role was more to do with inner journey that I was on. By making me engage with my real feelings, coaching has supported me to really own my role and the authority that comes with it, by helping me to come to terms with my own uniqueness and celebrate who I am. In doing so, on an outward level, it has completely changed how I am as a leader – the way I communicate, the way I hold myself in my role and it has given my leadership an authentic voice.”
