in November 2022.   


You will have the support of an effective, forward thinking Governing Body, committed to providing high quality education in an aspirational learning environment.  


You will be fully supported by the Trust CEO and Deputy CEO, the Director of School Improvement and a central services team who deliver IT, Finance, Facilities and HR under

the leadership of a COO and Chief Information Officer working collaboratively with an experienced School Business Manager.  


We are delighted to present the Academy and the Trust as an opportunity to progress your career and make a real difference to a vibrant community. Please take the opportunity to meet with us to fully appreciate the potential for of this role.   


This will be a truly rewarding experience for the right candidate offering the opportunity to make a significant impact and real difference as the Academy moves into its next

phase of development.
