Our Shared Services
There are significant benefits associated with being part of a multi academy trust – enabling savings across central services, alongside the ability to invest in strategic roles supporting schools to become more effective.
By ‘clubbing together’, our three schools have access to resources and support that individually they would not be able to afford, and ultimately, we are able to collaborate to provide better outcomes for our pupils.
We are responsible for the long-term financial sustainability of the Trust, and support each school in its own budgeting. We also manage all finance processing, payroll and other financial reporting for the schools.
Estates & Facilities
We lead a team of school-based premises staff at each site, making sure our buildings and facilities are fit for purpose for students and staff. We also manage all capital development and large refurbishment projects, working with experts to secure external funding where possible.
We lead a team of school-based IT staff at each site, managing the digital infrastructure that supports high-quality teaching and learning in the classroom, as well as key systems for staff.
We work across the Trust and take responsibility for managing and coordinating all HR functions, implementing policies, and ensuring best practice. As well as advising and supporting Headteachers and the wider Executive Team with the selection, recruitment, development and management of all staff, we are responsible for ensuring an inclusive and kind working environment.
We also take the lead in managing a number of Trust-wide external contracts, including the provision of catering, cleaning and other core services across all three sites.
