About the employer

Maritime Academy Trust began as a partnership of three schools in Greenwich. The impact of our partnership work was striking – our schools transformed through targeted collaboration, innovative ideas and an entrepreneurial curriculum, firmly embedded in knowledge, that builds leadership and life skills into children. To secure this collaboration for the future, we created Maritime in 2016. Since then, our Trust has grown in strength, capacity and expertise. We now serve 4000 pupils and 700 staff in thirteen schools across Greenwich, Bexley, Kent and Medway. We support the development of our schools in all aspects of education, finance, HR, IT, estates, operations and governance. Our role as a Trust is to ensure meaningful collaboration drives improvement, innovation and efficiencies across the schools, enabling headteachers to focus on teaching and learning so every pupil can thrive.
