The postholder’s annual responsibilities, in consultation with the CEO, align with the Trust’s strategic objectives. Familiarity with National Professional Standards for Headteachers and Teacher Standards is crucial for the Performance Management process.

The Education Deputy Director plays a key role in instilling the Trust’s ethos, fostering centers of excellence marked by respect, tolerance, care, and support in all school activities. Collaborating with Trust Senior Leaders, the role involves shaping a Trust-wide school improvement model and embedding the expected standard across all schools. Additionally, the Deputy Director leads curriculum reviews, identifies improvement areas, and develops a strategic curriculum framework aligned with the Trust’s vision. Providing high-quality, cost-effective support to Trust schools and ensuring quality assurance measures for the impact on student outcomes are also part of the responsibilities.

Our vision is to create a collaborative community that delivers optimal opportunities and outcomes for all students. Our motto, “Excellence through collaboration,” reflects our belief that teamwork enables personal growth and development. 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.
