  • Do you want to join us and write the story for a growing multi-academy trust?
  • Are you interested in utilising the expertise of our own Research School and SCITT to enhance teacher development and recruitment in your school?
  • Are you looking for a trust that is respectful of retaining a school’s unique characteristics and autonomy, as well as being committed to collaborative working?
