A family of schools

The Diocese of Chichester Academy Trust exists for its schools. Each school is unique in its own right and serves its own children and local community.  As an education academy trust, our schools work together to support and challenge each other to keep improving so that all of our children can achieve their best and their God-given potential in all aspects of school life.

We see that collaboration works and being together in our local hubs we have the ability to share what’s working well and seek support in areas where things can be even better. The centre team provides locally based and often hands on resources to add value and help our Headteachers focus on the quality of education for the children in our collective care.

The Trust is our schools and the schools make up the Trust. If you are interested in finding out more please do speak to any of our schools or contact the Trust.
