The University of Chichester Academy Trust

The decision made by University of Chichester in 2012 to become an Academy Sponsor was a carefully considered but wholehearted one. The University has an education heritage that goes back over 150 years, it has been training teachers and innovating in education from the beginning and has a strong partnership programme working with 600 schools across the region. It was a natural step for the University to take this relationship to another level by becoming involved in the academies programme and in the school-based training revolution. 

Now firmly established as an educational charity, the University of Chichester Multi-Academy Trust is uniquely placed to make a difference to schools in the region. With access to University resources and expertise, including school improvement specialists from the University’s Education Department, and the extensive experience of our core team of Finance, HR and Premises professionals we can tailor support that meets the specific needs of our academies in their own locality.

The journey to excellence will be different for every school. Using a genuine partnership approach, our academies become part of a shared endeavor designed to raise aspirations and enrich lives. Conversion to academy status with the University of Chichester Academy Trust is an opportunity to be part of a caring and supportive learning community which encourages pupils, staff and the wider community to work together to exceed their own expectations.

Welcome to our web site and for whatever reason you have visited I hope you find the information you are searching for. We are immensely proud of our Trust and our Academies so please get in touch if we can be of any further help.
