Introducing the WAT Way: Codified Approaches to School Improvement

At Windsor Academy Trust, we believe in the power of collaboration and alignment to drive school improvement. Our unique approach, known as the "WAT Way," is built upon codified methodologies that have been developed collaboratively, grounded in research, and informed by innovative and impactful practice.

The WAT Way provides a flexible framework that caters to each school's stage in their improvement journey within the WAT School Transformation Model. By focusing on key areas of school improvement, we ensure that our member schools have the tools and support needed to thrive.
