Palladian Academy Trust

Widcombe C of E Juniors School is a member of the Palladian Academy Trust (PAT), a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) formed in 2016. The PAT is a community of geographically close secondary, primary, infant and junior schools, each with its own particular ethos, that enjoy a mutually enriching partnership.The PAT includes both church and community academies working closely together, all connected by the vision we share for our students. We value and respect the individuality of every child and believe their learning and development should be personal and holistic. We aim to support their wellbeing and help them achieve their best. The schools in the PAT are:

Combe Down C of E Primary School St Martin’s Garden Primary School
Fitzmaurice Primary School St Philip’s C of E Primary School
Oldfield Park Infant School Widcombe Infant School
Oldfield Park Junior School Widcombe C of E Junior School
Ralph Allen School (secondary school) Winsley Primary School


Why The Name ‘Palladian Academy Trust’?

The Palladian Bridge in Prior Park is a local landmark and since bridges connect people, the group felt this was a very appropriate emblem. The logo for the Trust reflects this.

About MATs

A MAT is a group of schools governed by one trust and a single board of directors. The board is responsible for decisions relating to how each academy is run, from curriculum to staffing.

Each of the academies within a MAT has a school governing body to which it delegates some of its functions, although the MAT remains overall accountable.
