Diocese of Gloucester Academies Trust

Authentically Christian        

Boldly passionate about excellence  in learning   

Relentlessly driven in our aspiration  for everyone

St John's Church of England Academy forms part of the Diocese of Gloucester Academy Trust.

 

The purpose of the Diocese of Gloucester Academies Trust (DGAT) is to provide children of all faiths and none with excellent educational provision which transforms lives within a caring and supportive Christian ethos. Our aim is, therefore, to provide a complete and fully-inclusive education which:

  • Enables human flourishing by encouraging pupils’ and adults’ gifts and talents;
  • Nurtures the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of the academy community, as well as maximising the progress, achievement and attainment of every child;
  • Celebrates the intrinsic value of every person, made in the image of God.

The Diocese of Gloucester Academies Trust (DGAT) works with academies which realise the benefit of a collaborative approach to sustaining and developing excellent educational provision.

The mission of the Trust is to create and sustain a family of academies in the Diocese of Gloucester which provides children of all faiths and none with excellent educational provision within a distinctively caring and supportive Christian ethos.

The vision of the Trust is to build and sustain a community of learning where staff and pupils can realise their potential and enjoy life in all its fullness.
