Dartmoor Multi-academy Trust
Our Trust, which was created in January 2018, consists of 16 schools, over 5000 pupils/students and 750 adults, who have come together based on a shared vision which encompasses the values of both the Cooperative movement and the Church of England. We are excited about the opportunities that such a cross phase Trust is able to offer our community.
