Our Mission is to provide the best education and life chances for the children and young people of Walsall.

The Mercian Trust is a group of schools working together under a common banner and an over-arching structure of governance but retaining their autonomy as custodians of their unique heritage, distinct identity and successful operation. Pupils in the Mercian Trust are part of a family of schools forming an educational community. 

At present, the Trust is made up of 6 schools: Aldridge School, Queen Mary’s High School, Queen Mary’s Grammar School, Shire Oak Academy, The Ladder School and Walsall Studio School. More information about these schools can be found on their individual school websites.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, dynamic and dedicated leader, who shares the same values and ethos as the Trust, to work within our central MAT team.

The Director of School Improvement will work alongside our MAT central team and leadership and department teams in our schools to increase capacity and improve outcomes for pupils. 

The successful candidate will be an experienced, effective middle or senior leader with a strong teaching and learning background and a demonstrable record of securing improvement. 

The successful candidate will have a passion for teaching and want to retain that close connection with working with teachers and pupils in classrooms alongside their leadership responsibilities.

Informal conversations are welcomed and encouraged.
