Welcome from the Chair of the Board of Trustees

Lowell Williams
Chair of Board of Trustees

Dudley Academies Trust brings together four Dudley secondary schools and two primary schools into an activist organisation under the sponsorship of Dudley College of Technology.

The aim is to significantly improve the education, career opportunities and economic fortunes of young people in Dudley and beyond.

The Trust’s role in this is to give its learners the very best start in life and a level of educational excellence that was previously unavailable to them. We are achieving this through strong leadership, significant financial investment, the recruitment of great teachers, the sharing of expertise and the introduction of the latest available learning technologies.


We believe that Dudley Academies Trust is absolutely the best way forward for our students, parents and staff. Over the last few years, we have:

  • Accelerated pupil attainment across our schools
  • Increased the levels of outstanding teaching in all schools
  • Raised pupil confidence, developed their future career aspirations and increased their knowledge of career options
  • Ensured that all learners, irrespective of their differing abilities, have the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential – supporting those with learning difficulties and providing high levels of pastoral care.

I am confident that we have the resources and the people in place to achieve the ambitious goals set out in our Strategic Plan.

As a parent you can be sure we will make every effort to develop your child’s ambitions and aspirations so they can best prepare for their future career choices and fulfilling adult lives.
