About Reach2 Academy Trust

Multi-academy trust
Phone number

REAch2 Academy Trust is the largest primary-only academy trust in the country. It’s a growing charitable organisation currently supporting 60 primary academies across England.

We are not like other trusts and like to support and create individual schools where the SLT have a high level of autonomy. Our academies serve individual communities and so need to be individual themselves. Our schools work within clusters, sharing best practice to foster greater educational aspirations and higher standards.

As REAch2 is a growing organisation, we are always looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our existing and new schools to make them the best that they can be.

We have opportunities not only for qualified teachers and support staff, but also for those looking to train with school centered initial teacher training (SCITT) programmes or those looking to work in the public sector support positions in IT, HR, Finance, Estates/Facilities, Catering and more.
