Portsmouth and Winchester Diocesan Academies Trust

Joining the Trust


We are always happy to talk to prospective new schools, academies and talented individuals in the education and support professions who may want to explore joining us and help us transform the life chances of all our children, or who just want to talk through the process and learn from our experience to this point.

Whether you are a stand-alone academy, a school or a cluster of schools seeking information we will be very pleased to meet with you at one of our academies, central office or we come to meet with you, your SLT or governors at your own school.


Please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Interim Chief Executive Officer, Fiona Perkins, if we can be of help.


We work with an experienced firm of solicitors and due diligence consultancy to make the conversion process as seamless as possible.


Please contact us if you would like to speak to one of our academies regarding the conversion process or to discuss what it is like to be an academy within the Trust.
