"Because we believe that every child has only one chance at a good education"

"Our mission is to provide high quality education within the context of Christian belief and practice so that every child can fulfil their academic potential and accomplish their individual goals"

Welcome to Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust

Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust (BDAT) is a Bradford based multi-academy trust committed to providing high quality education for all the children in our schools through collaboration, challenge and targeted support. Our purpose is to maintain and drive rapid school improvements through shared best practice across our growing family of schools and partners.

Our pledge is to ensure that every student in a BDAT academy receives a happy high quality education, enabling their competence, confidence and character to thrive. Our current family of schools consists of nine primaries and four secondary shools. We look forward to welcoming more schools in to the Trust in 2017-18.

We are currently looking for new Governors in our schools, for further details please click on the link below.
