Working with Headteachers, Governors & Staff
Being a Headteacher is a fantastic job, but at times it can be also be a lonely and stressful job. Working with a group of Headteachers means you are supported by colleagues who understand your role and its challenges. If you are attracted to our Trust it will be because you share our values for education. Trust and honesty are key leadership characteristics of our Trust. This enables Headteachers and governors to have the space to lead their schools.
Autonomy & Support for Headteachers
As a Headteacher you will be used to making decisions and leading your staff. We believe that Headteachers should always have that autonomy. Being a Headteacher can be a lonely and stressful job. Working with a group of Headteachers means you are supported by colleagues who understand your role and its challenges.
Experience in collaboration between departments
Aligning exam boards at GCSE and post 16 has helped reduce workload for staff as well as enabled us to share great resources and engage in useful moderation work.
Collaborative development of teaching, learning & leadership
Trusts must only exist if they add value to the students and staff in those schools. We believe that effective collaboration and professional development can make a real and significant difference to all schools involved. That has been our experience to date.
The importance and value of governance in a Trust
We know that governors can fear losing their influence and the importance of a governing body if their school was to join a trust. We believe that local governing bodies have a vital role to play in the leadership and management of schools and want to provide reassurance that this is our view.
You may be a primary school Headteacher that is looking for an opportunity to have an impact in more than one school. We are keen to develop the primary phase of our Trust and want to work with an experienced and ambitious Headteacher to do so.
