The Diocese of Gloucester Academies Trust (DGAT) is a multi-academy Trust established by the Diocesan Board of Education (DBE) in 2012.
The purpose of DGAT is to provide children of all faiths and none with excellent educational provision which transforms lives within a caring and supportive Christian ethos. Our aim is, therefore, to provide a complete and fully-inclusive education which:
Enables human flourishing by encouraging pupils’ and adults’ gifts and talents;
Nurtures the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of the academy community, as well as maximising the progress, achievement and attainment of every child;
Celebrates the intrinsic value of every person, made in the image of God.
There are current fourteen primary schools and one infant school within the Trust. Fourteen of the fifteen academies have religious designation as Church of England schools. All of the academies are located in Gloucestershire Local Authority.
