A message from the CEO

At RDAT we are determined that our schools provide the very best educational experience for pupils at both primary and secondary level.

We believe that children deserve an excellent education and we insist that our schools provide this through a personalised approach which helps prepare them for life.

Our Trust is efficient, effective and delivers the economies to free more resources to the front line.  We are passionate about raising standards and improving our schools.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our site.

A message from Bishop James

The Rochester Diocesan Academy Trust is an exciting new development to extend the work of our existing Diocesan Family of Schools.

The Diocesan Board of Education has served the needs of our Church schools in the Diocese of Rochester for over a hundred years and is a long standing, trusted partner within the South-East.

The new Diocesan Academy Trust will provide stability and support for Church schools wishing to become academies with strong governance from the Trust’s experienced team of Directors.

I am very pleased to support and commend the Trust, and look forward to welcoming the staff, pupils and parents of those schools which will join the Academy Trust this year. They will benefit from the educational excellence and strong Christian ethos which the Trust will bring for every academy in the group.

Right Reverend James Langstaff
