What skills and experience we're looking for

This is a career-defining opportunity for a finance professional, with vision and a strong track record, to join Ridgeway Education Trust as its Chief Financial Officer. You will be part of a strong Trust Executive Team which is dedicated to high quality education for 4-19 year olds with powerful collaboration at the heart of everything we do. We are an outward facing and thriving Trust exploring opportunities for growth. We are looking to appoint someone who will be passionate in their support of our schools and committed to the culture of continuous improvement which typifies our Trust.

What the school offers its staff

Ridgeway Education Trust (RET) is a multi-academy trust which comprises Didcot Girls’ School, St Birinus Boys’ School and Sutton Courtenay Church of England Primary School. The two secondary schools also include Didcot Sixth Form, a mixed sixth form of some 400 boys and girls.

Didcot Girls’ School is an outstanding school, as confirmed by Ofsted (November 2022). The school has a commitment to the very highest standards and is an exciting and happy school where real attention is given to professional development and staff wellbeing. St Birinus School was judged to be a good school, once more, by Ofsted (February 2020) and is on its way to outstanding. The school has a strong sense of identity and a tangibly vibrant ethos. Sutton Courtenay CofE Primary School joined RET in April 2019, creating the opportunity to build an exceptional, coherent education provision from nursery up to, and including, sixth form.

Both secondary schools are unique as the only single sex state schools in Oxfordshire and all three schools share the same strong values of high quality teaching and learning and respectful relationships within an inclusive learning community.
