Acer Trust

Botley School is proud to be a member of The Acer Trust, having joined the organisation in March 2020. This page gives a brief overview of the Trust, contact details and links to the Acer Trust website.

The Acer Trust was formed in early 2017 having previously been a single school Multi Academy Trust (West Oxford Schools Trust).  We are now a multi academy trust of seven Oxfordshire schools; currently we have four primary schools and three secondary schools in our Trust.


Our core aim is to work in collaborative partnership as a family of schools, united through the Acer Trust, to improve outcomes for all the learners across those schools.


Our plan is drive for constant improvement in the quality of educational experience for every learner in our family of schools.


The founding partner schools in the formation of the Acer Trust were:


Icknield Community College, Watlington, 

Wood Green School, Witney;  

Chalgrove Community Primary School and

Matthew Arnold School, Oxford.
