Shaping our Future Strategy 2022


On the 16th November 2017 the Diocesan Board of Education approved a new School Organisation Strategy to guide the future direction of our Church schools and academies in the school-led system.

The new strategy, Shaping our Future, has been devised in consultation with a sample of leaders from our Church schools and academy trusts and has been shared with our key partners including Local Authorities and the Regional Schools Commissioner.

We will launch the new Strategy at our Heads & Chairs Briefings on 25th and 26th January 2018 at our new Diocesan Offices, Church House Guildford and would encourage Headteachers and Chairs of Governors to be in attendance at one of these meetings. 

In the Spring term the Diocese will also facilitate a number of additional events in localities where we intend to share the Strategy and help schools work on their next steps in response to it.

You can download a copy of the Strategy below and a copy of the letter sent to Headteachers and Chairs of Governors from Alex Tear, Director of Education.

You can read the Director's Blog which provides a summary of the Strategy.
