Leading Edge Academies Partnership (the ‘Trust’) is a local partnership of academies in south west Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, formally established in August 2018 and currently consists of two secondary schools (Mounts Bay Academy and Fowey River Academy), one all through school (Five Islands Academy) and three primary schools (St Hilary School, Ludgvan School and St Buryan Academy).
Due to the retirement of our founding CEO (and former Headteacher of Mounts Bay Academy) on 31 August 2020, Trustees are now seeking to make a permanent appointment to an exceptional individual to lead the Trust towards the next stage of its development. Working closely with our Trust Board and in partnership with a range of internal and external stakeholders, you will deliver the Trust’s strategic vision and lead our academies to deliver strong outcomes and outstanding provision across the MAT family of schools.
The ideal candidate will be an inspirational leader and experienced Headteacher, working within an academy’s context, who will wholeheartedly embrace the mission, vision and values of the Trust and empower others to do the same. Through a highly collaborative approach, exceptional communication and strong interpersonal skills and the determination to make a positive difference, you will have a track record of success in delivering a strategic vision that drives a culture of continuous improvement and ensures the highest possible achievement for all. You will be highly accomplished at developing professional networks and partnerships, have a clear understanding of the current education landscape, strong financial acumen and a proven ability to manage risk effectively.
It is important to us that the leader we appoint will follow the seven principles of public life and have the confidence, vision and skills to lead the continued improvement and growth of the Trust, whilst at the same time ensuring the health and wellbeing of children and staff. We are also looking for a leader who will support and nurture the unique ethos of the academies across the Trust.
