News Local Bradford school sponsor grows to 7 from July 2016

Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust (BDAT) welcomed two new schools in to the Trust this month, as Westminster Primary School and Oxenhope Primary School completed their conversion to become academies.

Both Church of England primary schools in Bradford embarked on consultation earlier in the academic year with a conversion date planned for July 2016. They join three other primaries and two secondary schools who already operate as academies with the local Diocesan sponsor.

Carol Dewhurst, Chief Executive Officer of the Trust stated “I am really pleased to welcome Westminster and Oxenhope in to BDAT. We have worked with governors and staff at the schools for a number of months and it great that they are now officially both part of the BDAT family. Our group of five primaries are already working closely together to support each other’s teaching and learning and to provide joined up exciting experiences for the children across our schools. I look forward to watching this partnership and love of learning develop further in the future”.

BDAT is an expanding multi-academy Trust operating across the Bradford district. It was set up by the Diocese to sponsor schools in 2012 and has expanded further in 2015-16 to incorporate a number of good schools within the Trust including Westminster, Oxenhope and Immanuel College which joined BDAT in February of this year.
