  • Generate levels of surplus, sufficient to secure sustainability and create funds to support investment in our academies and the delivery of our vision.

  • Achieve a shared sense of mission and belonging across our community of academies so that the vision is owned by the whole Trust and understood by our partners.

  • Work collaboratively with other academies within the Trust and with other schools/academies within the wider community, sharing resources, knowledge and best practice and supporting each other.

The University of Chichester Academy Trust seeks to add powerful momentum to the progress of our family of academies through a shared aspirational vision and inclusive ethos. People matter to us and we believe that student progress and the development of outstanding teachers should be at the heart of our work. Our approach is that all schools are different and can take different routes on their journey to excellence.
