Welcome from the Chair of the Trust


I am delighted to welcome you to the Dunstone Education Trust website.

We have a Trust Board made up of extremely knowledgeable, skilled and dedicated people. They come from a wide range of backgrounds in education, digital technology, marketing, human resources, accountancy and more. They are experts and highly successful in each of their fields.

Our key functions as a Board are :

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the Trust
  • Holding senior leaders to account for the performance of the schools, their pupils and the performance of the staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the Trust and ensuring that money is well spent.

The Dunstone Education Trust is a values led organisation which means we are committed to our values: We Care, We Commit, We Challenge. We aim to live our values in all we do. Our ambition is to develop a group of schools which ensures our pupils are safe and happy, receive an excellent education and achieve their full potential.

This website sets out  what each of our values mean at Trust, Governance and Academy level.

Included on this website you will find our Strategic Plan which sets out our ambition to grow and to add more schools to the Dunstone family.
