CEO’s welcome

Jez Piper 77

Welcome to the Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust’s website. Since taking up my new role as CEO of the Trust in May 2019, I have been overwhelmed by the passion of so many people within DBAT for its development, not only to meet the needs of all learners, but also to meet the needs of all staff, governors and the communities that our schools serve. Ours is a very special, and diverse organisation which reflects not only the joint vision of everyone within the Trust, but also the unique characters of each community our Trust serves.

We hope that the information on our website will give you a glimpse into our Trust family and all that we do. If you are interested in finding out more about us, or if you are interested in working for us or joining us as a school, have please don’t hesitate to email us at We’d be delighted to talk to you.

This is a very special and important time for our family of schools, to be part of and linked to DBAT. We are changing, growing and flourishing as a Trust, with three additional schools joining our family in 2019 alone, including our first Secondary Academy. I am very excited about the opportunities that this affords us, not least of which is that we now have the chance to really develop skills for life-long learning - from 2 year old provision through to 18 year olds in Upper Sixth, and beyond as we develop our new CPD programme for all staff.

It is a great honour for me to be the CEO of this Trust, and I am humbled to be able to work with such outstanding staff and governors towards the same aims, vision and objectives: Learning for Life in all its Fullness. Nurturing Excellence. Serving Communities.

'Let Your Light Shine' (Matthew 5:15)
