CEO Welcome

Providing the best education for children in a Christian environment

Thank you for visiting the CDAT home page. CDAT is a multi-academy trust currently working with six church schools from across the whole of the Diocese of  Chester.

This is a really exciting time to be part of CDAT. We have a great group of schools currently and are looking forward to further schools joining the CDAT family in the coming months. Our aim as a trust is to give everyone within our schools – pupils and staff – the chance to achieve to the very best of their gifts and abilities within caring, Christian communities. There are tremendous opportunities for partnership working, and for tackling together the many challenges that currently exist in education.

CDAT has a small central team, based at Church House in Daresbury. However, much of our work is done within area-based clusters, which allows school staff and leaders to work closely together to share excellent practice and drive forward school improvement. We are also developing exciting partnerships with some significant national groups that will give our schools great opportunities moving forwards.

I hope our website gives you the information that you are looking for – whether you are a school interested in joining our trust, a parent or pupil at one of our schools or simply an interested visitor. If you are interested in having a conversation about potentially becoming part of the CDAT family, please get in touch – I’d be delighted to meet you.

Neil Dixon, CDAT Chief Executive Officer.
