About Windsor Academy Trust

Windsor Academy Trust (WAT) is a leading multi academy trust that was formed to improve the quality of education through the sharing of ideas and best practice among its schools.

The Trust was established in 2011, when Windsor High School and Sixth Form, one of the first converter Academies, was approached by the Department of Education to be a sponsor. In the past 10 years, we have grown into a hugely successful family of nine academies providing outstanding education to over 7,000 students aged 2 to 18.

We currently have five primary schools and four secondary schools located across the West Midlands and are due to open a new free school in Sandwell in September 2022.

We are clear that young people achieve their best in a climate of high expectations where teachers are motivated and empowered. At WAT we combine a shared experience of primary and secondary schools and promote student and staff collaboration across all of our schools in our search for excellence.

Teaching and Learning is at the core of all our work and this is underpinned by an extensive programme of professional training for our staff.

We are extremely proud of our innovative and successful approach to teaching and learning, and school improvement. This has been recognised as an example of best practice and we support a number of schools, leaders and teachers outside of the Trust, through delivering training and sharing resources.
