Diocese of Sheffield Academies Trust

'Believing in Primary Excellence'

The Diocese of Sheffield Academies Trust (DSAT) was established in October 2013 as an independent charitable company set up by the Sheffield Diocesan Board of Education.

The purpose of the Trust is to create a mutually supportive family of Church and non-church academies, holding within it both schools that choose to become converter academies and those seeking a sponsored solution.

DSAT is an approved DfE Academy Sponsor. The Trust is focussed on improving the life chances for pupils and their communities in the South Yorkshire region.

Our DSAT Improvement Mission
  • To create and sustain challenging, stimulating, nurturing and exciting learning experiences where all children achieve well and are keen to learn.
  • To deliver good and outstanding teaching and learning for all pupils every day.
  • To offer an inclusive framework for education that opens for our children “life in all its fullness”.
  • To empower leadership at all levels to drive improvements so that each school is aspirational and moves to its next level of performance.
