Start Application

This is a unique opportunity for an exceptional leader to lead a highly successful Trust in the next exciting stage of its development. The Trust is comprised of three schools and a Teaching School Hub, and is highly influential at local and regional level. The successful candidate will provide strong system leadership.

Wembley Multi-Academy Trust was formed in 2016 and has established itself as one of the most successful in the country over many years. The Trust is comprised of:

1. Wembley High Technology College (WHTC)
2. East Lane Primary School
3. North Brent School (currently on WHTC premises whilst the new building is completed)
4. Teaching School Hub – status awarded by the Department for Education in 2021 and redesignation awarded in 2024.

All the schools in our Trust are, first and foremost, outstanding learning communities where academic excellence sits alongside the breadth of education. We believe in providing a structured and disciplined working environment in which all pupils can achieve their full potential. There is a very high standard of teaching across all schools which, coupled with strong work ethic, allows our pupils to flourish. Our broad, balanced and innovative curriculum is designed to challenge pupils to reach their potential, and there is a particular focus on English, Mathematics and the Sciences.

As a Trust, our most important commitment is to our pupils. The quality of education we provide makes us exceptional. We have a mission to be the best, and continuous improvement is embedded in our DNA. We are committed to making a difference to the children in our communities and not allow disadvantage to be a barrier to achievement. All schools in the Trust are highly popular and parental first choice far exceeds the number of places available.

In addition, as the Chief Executive Officer, you will have a great opportunity to lead and develop the Teaching School Hub. The Teaching School Hub gives you a strong regional profile and you will be able to help shape the quality of teaching and leadership across Barnet, Brent and Enfield. Leading one of the 87 Teaching School Hubs is a privilege and responsibility that the new Chief Executive Officer will need to discharge with humility, care and collegiality.
