Join Our Talent Pool


Across the Trust we pride ourselves on our innovative approach to curriculum design. We want our pupils, regardless of their starting points and barriers, to believe their curriculum is bold, exciting, purposeful, and ultimately leads to something meaningful for them.

We constantly seek to innovate and provide better opportunities to develop both knowledge and skills for life. This innovation comes in many forms, including extending school days to provide a world-class enrichment programme and additional opportunities for essential skills development; the introduction of vocational and technical pathways to develop work readiness in our pupils, supported by leading employers and universities; co-constructing curriculum across all EBacc subjects, to create world class programmes, rich in knowledge and skills; We are also driving PedTech across the sector, focusing on fully digitally enhanced curriculum and close to 1:1 device delivery.

We are currently at an exciting point in our evolution, with collaboration at the heart of our endeavour. We value the 'power of the pack' and strive as a collective, ensuring no school or colleague is left behind.

We take an evidence-informed approach to developing the quality of our teaching and learning and value a non-hierarchical, supportive approach to developing great teachers.

This approach has led to a significant reduction in workload, meaning colleagues can spend more time on curriculum delivery and fostering strong relationships with pupils.

As a people-focused trust, we consider the professional development of our staff as a fundamental responsibility. Where any schools face any barrier, it has the mutual support of the others to call upon for subject specific or general support. Our directors have a wealth of leadership experience and subject knowledge and support staff across the trust to design and the deliver the very best academic experience to our pupils.
