In 2018, we became an academy, and part of the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust.  

For information about the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust, please visit

The Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust’s vision is to provide the highest possible quality of education for all local children, in order to ensure pupils from all backgrounds are able to succeed. To achieve this, the Dartmoor trust is committed to have regard to the co-operative principles and values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.

Accountable to the Members, the Trustees of the Dartmoor MAT are responsible for the general control of the Trust in accordance with the provisions set out in the Articles of Association and the Scheme of Delegation. The Board of Trustees is the accountable body for the performance of all Academies within the Trust and, as such, must:  

  1.  Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; 
  2.  Hold the CEO to account for the educational performance of the Academies and their pupils, and the performance management of staff;  
  3.  Oversee the financial performance of the Trust, ensuring financial probity and value for money.

The Board of Trustees meets half termly basis. The Board also has four core committees, Ethos, School Improvement, Resources, and Audit which meet at least termly. For more information, please visit the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust website
