Our vision is to be:

Authentically Christian

Boldly passionate about excellence in learning

Relentlessly driven in our aspiration for everyone


Our vision is rooted in our Christian foundation and our belief that all within our family should experience life in all its fullness.


Our core principles

These underpin all we do and all the decisions we take.

  • We aspire to be the best we can be in an ever-changing environment - providing opportunities for all to flourish.

  • Within our DGAT family we cherish everyone as individuals; appreciating and celebrating diversity.

  • We act with integrity; we are open to challenge and we are reflective about our practice.

  • We treat everyone with dignity and respect.

  • Through collaboration, in a nurturing community, we grow, learn and achieve.

A picture of who we are


As a Trust set up by the Diocese of Gloucester Board of Education, all we do is steeped in both the National Church of England Vision for Education: Deeply Christian – Serving the Common Good and the diocesan LIFE vision.


Deeply Christian - Serving the Common Good is permeated by four core elements WISDOM, HOPE, COMMUNITY, DIGNITY. Our work is rooted in these elements and in all our schools these will be in evidence in our decision making, our relationships, our communications and our learning.


Together the Trust Board, central staff and our school communities are united in enabling children and staff to grow, flourish and succeed in an environment of educational excellence.
