Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust was created in January 2018 based on a shared vision, embracing both the Co-operative values and those of our Church of England schools.
We are excited about the opportunities that such a cross phase Trust is able to offer our communities and we are committed to create an ambitious, forward thinking learning environment for all our pupils, students and staff. There will be opportunities for everyone connected to the Trust to grow and develop and therefore fulfil their ambitions. We welcome your interest in joining our vibrant family of schools that this exciting opportunity brings. The trust is currently made up of 3 secondary schools, 14 primary schools, and an all-through specialist SEMH school in our Trust, helping just under 5000 children and 850 staff to thrive – this is a truly exciting Trust to be involved with.
Our network of schools is driven by a shared vision of excellence, creativity, and community engagement. We believe in fostering an environment where every learner can thrive, and our team plays a pivotal role in making this vision a reality.
Everyone in our Trust truly matters to us and we have a commitment to continuous professional development and learning for all. Through our innovative myTalent development approach, we want to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to achieve their very best.
