Multi Academy Trust and Local Governing Body

The Didcot Academy of Schools is the Multi Academy Trust (MAT) that oversees Didcot Girls' School. It was created in the summer of 2012 when Didcot Girls' School converted to academy status. At that time the governors of Didcot Girls' School chose to convert into an academy within a newly established multi-academy trust structure in order to help facilitate future collaboration and partnership with other schools.

In October 2013 the Didcot Academy of Schools also successfully applied to the Department for Education (DfE) for sponsor academy status.

The MAT Board has ultimate responsibility for running each academy within its structure and for setting the vision for all schools within the MAT. The MAT has a master funding agreement with a supplemental funding agreement for each academy.

St Birinus School joined the MAT on 1 September 2015 and it is expected that increased collaboration between the two secondary schools will help deliver a number of benefits including educational excellence, improved value for money and wider opportunities for partnership.

The core values of high quality teaching and learning, respectful relationships and an inclusive community will continue to 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 the school. We will be pleased to hear from you
