DoWAT is an outward facing Trust that seeks to establish and maintain long-lasting and mutually beneficial partnerships with other educational intuitions. In our efforts to continue to serve as a national beacon of Catholic excellence, we work particularly closely with the Catholic Education Service for England and Wales and the Diocese of Westminster Education Service; we continually strive to promote the very best of Catholic education within our schools. Additionally, we have strong alliances with the Church of England and other Catholic Dioceses and Trusts throughout England including Plymouth Cast and St Patrick’s Catholic College in Salford.

Alongside our work as a Trust to drive school improvement, we work with each Local Authority that our schools fall within, and, as a result, we have particularly strong school improvement partnerships with Herts for Learning and the London Boroughs.

A number of our Trust leaders represent the Trust at a national level and are often invited as keynote speakers to conferences.
