Multi Academy Trust and Local Governing Body
The Ridgeway Education Trust (RET) is the Multi Academy Trust (MAT) which oversees Didcot Girls’ School and St Birinus School. It was created in 2012 when Didcot Girls' School converted to academy status to help facilitate future collaboration and partnership with other schools. In October 2013, RET was successful in its application to the Department for Education for sponsor academy status.
St Birinus School joined the MAT on 1 September 2015. The increased collaboration between the two secondary schools helps to deliver a number of benefits including educational excellence, improved value for money and wider opportunities for partnership.
The MAT Board has ultimate responsibility for running each academy within its structure and for setting the vision for schools within the MAT. The MAT has a master funding agreement with a supplemental funding agreement for each academy.
As Executive Headteacher and CEO, Rachael Warwick has oversight of both schools, Didcot Sixth Form and the DGS Teaching School Alliance. She works closely with the Headteachers at both schools, the Director of Didcot Sixth Form and the Director of the DGS Teaching School Alliance to ensure high standards and a culture of continual improvement.
The core values of high quality teaching and learning, respectful relationships and an inclusive community underpin the Trust’s continuing development and support its commitment to excellence.
Key documents relating to the MAT are made available on this website. However, if you wish to know more about the MAT and how it operates please do not hesitate to contact Sophy Parkin-Haig, Company Secretary for RET, on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be pleased to hear from you.
