At the Heart of our Community
The Vale Academy Trust (VAT) was formed on 1st October 2013 when three local schools (King Alfred’s Academy, Charlton Primary School and Wantage CE Primary School) came together to work in partnership. There are now eight current member academies; the three founding schools, and four other primary academies that have since joined the Trust. Another Secondary School (Larkmead School in Abingdon) joined the Trust on 1st January 2017. It is expected that other local schools will seek to join the Trust in the next year or two.

Our Trust was the first to include non-faith and Church of England schools in a single multi academy trust and, as such, is able to cater for either type of school, ensuring that the individual ethos or faith element of member schools is protected. The Department for Education has also approved the Vale Academy Trust as a Sponsoring Academy Trust.
A video has been produced to explain more about the workings of the Trust – it can be viewed by clicking here.
