Interested in Governance?

Our Trust is looking for people who have background and experience in diversity and racial justice, change management and entrepreneurship.

Now is an excellent time to get involved in our growing Trust. We welcomed two new schools (Paxton and Ravenstone) to the Trust in 2019/20, in 2021 our Teaching School celebrated becoming one of just 87 Teaching School Hubs nationally, and our English, Maths and Early Years Hubs go from strength to strength.

Everyone involved in governance at Wandle Learning Trust has a strong connection to either the Trust or our schools, or to the region as a whole. We are currently seeking one new Member and two new Trustees to help guide the Trust through our next phase as we continue to grow in an ambitious but sustainable way. In addition Chestnut Grove and Paxton Academy are seeking Local Academy Committee members. Download our summary booklet for prospective governing body members here.

Please find full information about all governance roles within an Academy Trust generally in the Government guidance at this link. You can find information about the roles our Trust is recruiting for currently here (click on the Governance filter) and apply with a CV and a short expression of interest detailing which role you are applying for to the Clerk of the Trust by email 

As a new member of our governance team you will receive a full induction, and benefit from ongoing training as well as the support of an inclusive, welcoming team.

The deadline for the above roles is Monday 19th April, with interviews taking place in the week of 26th April.
