Former Archbishop Opens Academy Trust’s Headquarters

Former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams was the guest of honour when he officially opened the head office of the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT).
Dr Williams – now Master of Magdalene College in Cambridge – performed the ceremony with the Bishop of Ely, the Rt Reverend Stephen Conway.
DEMAT – which currently runs 33 schools across Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Peterborough and Suffolk – moved into permanent offices in the Grace Building at 8 High Street, Ely, last year.
The official opening featured a special performance by a choir from Ely St Mary’s CofE Junior School.
Headteachers, governors and Trust members joined the celebrations, which included the unveiling of a plaque and the cutting of a cake.
