The postholder’s specific responsibilities are annually determined in consultation with the CEO, aligning with the Trust’s strategic objectives. The Education Deputy Director is expected to adhere to the National Professional Standards for Headteachers and Teacher Standards, integral to the Performance Management process.

The role involves fostering the Trust’s ethos, aiming for excellence in schools marked by mutual respect, tolerance, care, and support. This ensures pride in all aspects of the school’s work. Responsibilities also encompass collaborating with Trust Senior Leaders to implement a Trust-wide school improvement model, establishing the expected standard across all Trust schools. Additionally, the role involves developing and leading a high-quality Trust Alternative Provision (TAP) unit to provide targeted and personalized education for students requiring additional support outside the mainstream setting. The position also includes delivering cost-effective support to Trust schools and quality assurance measures to assess the impact on student outcomes.

We measure excellence through student achievements and the unwavering commitment of our staff to uphold high standards in teaching, learning, and student support.

As a learning community, we embrace each day as a new opportunity for insight and growth, applying freshly acquired knowledge for the benefit of all. Our curriculum promotes the development of confident, independent learners equipped with the skills to thrive in a competitive world. Partnering with our Trust schools, we offer extensive enrichment opportunities for students to mature and broaden their understanding.

Being an outward-facing Trust, we maintain strong community links, particularly with feeder primary schools. Our expertise lies in promoting science and scientific discovery, actively supporting the primary curriculum in this area.
