How schools can convert

The Diocesan Board of Education (DBE) leads the diocesan academies programme and set up the registered charity, Guildford Diocese Educational Trust (GDET), to oversee this work.  GDET also acts on behalf of the DBE to approve the application of diocesan schools to convert as single academy trusts.
