The Diocese of
Westminster Academy Trust

Apply to DOWAT

The Trust is open to applications from Catholic schools within the Diocese of Westminster. For schools wishing to join the Trust there is an initial application which has to be made to the Education Commission of the Diocese who act on behalf of the Trustees, a formal application must then be submitted to the Trust followed by a meeting with a representative group of the Board to discuss the proposal and how the school can be supported in its journey to conversion. It is very important that schools are fully aware of the differences in operating as an academy and the changes in roles, responsibilities, and financial compliance, again due diligence throughout the process is important in ensuring that schools are supported appropriately based on their individual needs.
