The Diocese of Canterbury Academies Trust (Aquila)


Trust Description

We aim to promote distinctive, inclusive communities of learning that seek to be underpinned by Christian values sourced in the Gospel narrative, enriching the whole educational experience. We aspire to excellence; to secure the best possible outcomes for children and young people, enabling them to fulfil their potential and make a worthwhile contribution to our diverse, dynamic society.

The Diocese of Canterbury Academies Trust is an established and highly successful Multi-Academy Trust currently consisting of primary schools and expecting to grow over the coming years.

The Trust offers:

• outstanding mentoring and coaching • full induction programme for all new staff • excellent professional development opportunities • an enviable track record of career progression • collaborative working in a supportive team environment

We are committed to ensuring our academies work together, sharing their strengths, to provide a great education for every pupil. We believe learning must be engaging and relevant and develop the whole child. Our academies design their coverage of the curriculum to provide challenging and exciting learning experiences in a caring and nurturing environment which is based on our strong Christian values. Our academies value every individual and celebrate differences through their culture of mutual trust and shared values.

We want to deliver and develop best practice through learning together and engaging with action research with Canterbury Christ Church University. We want our academies to serve their local communities through links with churches, each other and to develop wider networks enabling staff and pupils to flourish. Through developing leadership at all levels we want the pupils in our academies to become happy, successful, well rounded individuals who develop into lifelong learners.
