We became an academy with the Diocese of Gloucester Academy Trust on 1st November 2014
We are reaping the benefits of our involvement with DGAT. In particular the joint working with other schools and the high quality support from consultants has already begun in earnest and promises to make a significant difference to staff and the quality of education we can offer your children. Already we have high quality training organised for next term, as well as opportunities to visit outstanding practice in other parts of the country. We also now have other schools looking to come and see good practice here and learn from our leadership team. This is exactly what we had hoped for. In time of course we could also see adaptations to the curriculum we teach to make it that much more relevant to our children and certainly being an academy will give us greater freedoms regarding how we spend our income and allocate resources.
