University of Winchester Academy Trust

Welcome from the Executive Team


Thank you for your interest in the University of Winchester Academy Trust (UWinAT).

The Trust began in 2014 when the University was designated as the named sponsor for two new schools to be opened in Hampshire. These two schools at Barton Farm (Winchester)  and Stoneham Park (Eastleigh), opened in September 2020 and were joined in the December of that year by a well established and successful three school partnership - Halterworth, Wellow & Awbridge Primary Schools based in Romsey and on the edge of the New Forest.

Following the retirement of our Executive Leader the Trustees have appointed an Executive Leadership Team of four people who combine their expertise and experience to provide considerable capacity within the Trust.

Please look at Executive Leadership Team page to find out more about the team.

In 2023 Barton Farm and Stoneham Park received their first Ofsted reports with Barton Farm gaining an 'Outstanding' judgement and Stoneham Park 'Good' with outstanding for behaviour.

The Trust is proud of its ethos and aims to be, ‘Successful, Aspirational and to offer Inclusive Learning for everyone.’  Whilst we are justifiably proud of extremely high outcomes of all key stages, we also want to ensure that every child feels safe and happy within our schools.  We achieve our ambitions through a collaborative approach to  working between schools, the University and also our extensive training provision for teachers at all levels of their careers.

Our team of highly skilled SENDCo’s work across the Trust to ensure all pupils receive high quality inclusive education.

The Trust has a central business team which provides support to it’s schools for Human Resources, Finance, Estates Management, Health and Safety, Compliance and Administration.
