Thank you for taking an interest in the opportunity to become the new Executive Headteacher for the Wigston Academies Trust. This important appointment for the Trust and the wider community has arisen due to the impending retirement of the current Executive Headteacher Alex Green. Under his leadership the Trust has started to implement significant changes in the School and College structure in Wigston in order to provide the best possible educational opportunities for 11-19 year olds in the local community. We believe that due to the substantial changes already made the Trust is in a strong position to move forward.
The Directors see this as an exciting and challenging time for the Trust. The opportunity to appoint a new leader will allow the Trust to build on the considerable achievements to date and provide a new impetus to the development of the Trust and its work with key partners and the community.
The current leadership of the Trust has established a good and sustainable base supported by a well-motivated team of teaching and support staff. We are looking for someone who will maintain and enhance the Trust’s academic standards and lead the Trust through its next phase of development.
We are an inclusive Trust where every student is valued and encouraged to reach or exceed their potential. We create opportunities for our students and this extends to the provision of a wide range of enrichment activities both within and outside of the normal curriculum.
Our links with the local community are of vital importance and we continually seek ways to foster community involvement. The Directors and Governors are very supportive of the Executive Headteacher and leadership team and work assiduously to ensure the Trust is successful.
We hope you enjoy reading the information about our Trust, the activities we are undertaking and our aspirations for the future. We encourage you to visit us and experience the Academy and the College at first hand. If you feel that you can take the Trust to the next level in its development then we would very much welcome an application from you.
If you would like further information or an informal confidential discussion about the position please contact Chris Gartner at Hays Leadership on 07595646645 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With Kind Regards
Chair of Governors
