Establish 'the' benchmark education authority

The challenge

  • In 2016 56% of Buckinghamshire pupils reached the KS2 expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics compared to the national average of 53%
  • 74% of Buckinghamshire pupils achieve A*-C grades in English and mathematics GCSEs compared to 63% nationally (October 2016)
  • 87% of our students attend good or outstanding schools (October 2016)
  • Attainment gap widening – attainment levels at lower end are rising, but attainment levels at the higher end are rising faster
  • 50,000 new homes to be built over the next 20+ years
  • And budgets are tightening still further
  • We are absolutely committed to taking all this in our stride, and driving forward an already high achieving education system
  • And we're also absolutely committed to being a role model corporate parent, addressing issues around vulnerabilities, child sexual exploitation and radicalisation


So - how to enable us to become the best (and the safest) education authority in the country?


  • You'll ensure children get a great education to help them reach their potential
  • Life chances for children and families in Bucks will be enhanced

And when you do

  • You'll create the role model for others to follow and your reputation will be made
  • Your networks, skill sets and ideas will be in huge demand
  • We'll do our best to enrich your career and develop you
  • You'll open the doors to your choice of the most senior roles across public/private sectors and consulting
