About the employer

The creation of the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust is a natural progression of our belief in a partnership ethos and our determination to ensure that more young people receive an exceptional education. As a high performing primary school we were eligible to apply for academy status. There were a number of options for taking that status forward: As a standalone academy, which would have increased our autonomy, but limited our impact and possibly left us vulnerable As part of a larger, established chain with a vision and values that may not align to ours As the lead school in a new umbrella trust, which would give us control over vision, values, direction and impact. The last option fitted best with our aspirations to influence a better education for greater numbers of children locally, nationally and internationally.
