Share Multi-Academy Trust is a small but rapidly growing partnership of primary and secondary schools based in Kirklees, West Yorkshire. Our aim is to provide an outstanding education for the children we teach by investing in the people in our organisation. Our potential for further growth is excellent and we are well placed to take advantage of the government’s intention to create an education system led by schools.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a dynamic and experienced leader who is resilient, self motivated and driven to help drive forward school improvement, helping to create an environment for teaching that empowers both staff and children to achieve their highest potential.

We support each other and celebrate our successes together.
