London Diocesan Board for Schools
The London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS) are our sponsors. In 1924, the LDBS was set up to be the educational arm of the London Diocese. The function of the LDBS and aspects of its governance is set down in the Diocesan Measure that has been approved by both Parliament and the Church. The key purposes of the LDBS are ‘to promote church schools’ and ‘to promote education which is consistent with the faith and practice of the Church of England’.
The training arm of the LDBS, GROW, provides our Academy Improvement Partner, David Gosling.
