The Lion Education Trust has one core purpose – to transform new and existing schools into centres of teaching and learning excellence. By doing this, our schools become the local providers of choice for thousands of pupils, their families and communities, and develop into exemplary places for young people to develop and grow.

As the Chief Executive Officer, it is my role to oversee the teams and strategies the Trust uses to ensure that we are consistently delivering the highest-quality teaching and learning, and are operationally effective, every day. From the teachers in class to the support teams cleaning our schools, the same high expectations apply to everyone who works in our Trust. We have the same sense of aspiration and drive for every student who attends one of our schools, and our no-excuses culture means we work tirelessly to support and challenge our students to achieve the very best they can.

The Lion Education Trust is made up of new schools and existing schools on their way to becoming "good" and "outstanding" schools, and shares the same pedagogical and operational structures as our sister trust, the Lion Academy Trust. Through the development of assessment proficient learners, we will empower students to learn in a structured and supported manner from nursery to sixth form – creating the next generation of confident, successful citizens this country needs.

Please get in touch to discuss any aspect of joining us as a student or member of the team, or as a school looking to join a Trust that can accelerate your development and support you on your journey to becoming an excellent education service delivery partner. I look forward to welcoming you into the Lion Education Trust.

Chief Executive Officer
