CEO Welcome


Learn, Love and Achieve, Together with Jesus 



I am delighted to welcome you to the Liverpool Diocesan Schools Trust. 


The Liverpool Diocesan Schools Trust is proud to be the Diocesan MAT in the Diocese of Liverpool, established to keep the family of schools together and to provide life-enhancing relationships with the Christian faith and Jesus Christ.


As the Diocesan MAT, we have a very clear purpose, and our vision is uncompromising. We aim to provide an innovative, high-quality education, so that all children and learners, regardless of background, ethnicity or need, make excellent progress, and fulfil their academic potential.


We do this through being a family of schools. We support and connect with each other, share practice, and provide an excellent education that is built on distinctly Christian values, so that all children, learners and staff across our Trust, flourish. Central to this are our core values of collaboration, difference, local and inclusion, and our commitment to ensuring that all learners thrive through an education that teaches wisdom, instils hope, nurtures community, and embeds dignity and respect.


We are committed to supporting all schools across the Diocese, and outside the Diocese, including community schools, and as we grow and develop further, we are very much looking forward to welcoming new schools into our Trust. If you would like to have an informal conversation, please do contact me and I would be delighted to share who we are and what joining our family of schools would mean for you.
