Welcome Pirates!

Shaw Education Trust is a large family. We currently consist of 25 schools and 1 remarkable Independent Specialist College. Our schools cover all phases and all sectors: all are of equal value; all are of equal merit; all we are proud to serve.

We celebrate inclusivity, having ambition for each and every one of our 12,500 learners. We are an aspirational and motivated Trust, determined to affect positive outcomes for our communities.

We have a SCITT and an Institute of Education within our partnership and these provide outstanding career development pathways for teaching and support colleagues. Our apprenticeship model is dynamic, fast paced and stage appropriate. Exceptional, high quality professional learning lies at the heart of our approach: we regard it as a right, not a lottery. Our academies are great places to work, our teams buzz with creativity, and focus on excellence by all and for all.

This is a real opportunity for a proven leader to impact on children’s life chances and transform their futures. We will provide the opportunity to be innovative, creative and ground-breaking. We need bold, brave and brilliant.

We intend to give rise to something exceptional as we grow a multi-academy trust. We live our values which are at the heart of our ambition.

This role will provide challenge, stretch and opportunity. You will lead the system within a supportive partnership trust model but also beyond. We are not here to build empires, but to trigger, stimulate and provoke social and educational revolution for our communities. We also do the stuff that is difficult- that is where we choose to play but we have grown a magnificent team across the Trust who support each other’s excellence. They make me so proud.

If this opportunity makes your heart beat faster, and fires your passion, please contact our recruitment advisor, Chris Gartner. He can be contacted on 07595 646 645 or via email for an informal conversation, or discuss making an application for the role.

We look forward to meeting with you and welcoming you into our world.

Yours faithfully

Jo Morgan
Chief Executive Officer Shaw Education Trust
