Who We Are

Windsor Academy Trust (WAT) is a family of schools committed to unlocking students’ academic and personal potential. We put children at the centre of everything we do, delivering excellent education to 7,000 students aged 2 to 18 driven by 1,000 committed, inspiring and talented staff.

Established in 2011 with Windsor High School and Sixth Form, our family has grown to nine successful schools. We currently have five primary and four secondary schools developed from converters, sponsors, single academy trusts and new schools. Our family reach will be expanding with two new secondary free schools due to open and further plans for growth.

Teaching and learning is at the core of our work. This is underpinned by a culture of continuous improvement and extensive professional learning. We have developed exceptional teachers, leaders and professional services staff within our family and for schools and school trusts across the country for over a decade. We partner with the Teacher Development Trust to deliver NPQs and Capita and University of Birmingham as a delivery partner for the ECF. 

We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved in our first 10 years. Through collaborative leadership and future thinking, our vision is to continue to grow and provide the highest quality education to enable every student to realise their potential. A powerful component of this success is the synergy of primary and secondary collaboration and our innovative approach. Building on our first 10 years and striving to reach new frontiers, we have developed a compelling new strategy that will power WAT into the second decade.
