Dear Applicant,

Thank you for expressing an interest in the role of Chief Executive of the Coventry Diocesean Multi-Academy Trust. This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly effective and successful Trust and hope that you will apply.

This site contains relevant information which I hope you find to be of interest and will, when read together with the Trust’s web site and the Diocesan web site, give you a full and rounded picture of the Trust and where we sit within the Diocesan and Christian family.

Our vision is to ensure that all children from different backgrounds, cultures and faiths are safe and welcomed into our schools to receive the highest possible quality of education.  We expect our children and young people to grow in understanding of the Christian faith and of Christian values through our care, teaching and nurture in order to be able to live ‘life in all its fullness’.

The Trust has a strong and well-respected record of improving its schools as measured both by OFSTED and SIAMS and lays great store in improving and maintaining the educational and spiritual standards of all of our schools.

Since the Trust was founded in 2013 we have grown rapidly to a Trust of 18 schools, nearly 5,000 children, 800 staff and a budget approaching £20,000,000.

The successful applicant will find that this a maturing Trust with an experienced, well qualified and dedicated leadership team to work with. The applicant will also find a group of headteachers who work closely together to support the best outcomes for all children across the Trust and hardworking teaching and support staff who also share high aspirations for children and young people in their care.

We are therefore looking for a Christian applicant with a significant proven successful experience in education as well as in the business of running substantial schools or other academy trusts. The applicants will be aspirational and use their abilities, gifts and qualifications to develop new opportunities, give strategic guidance to the Board of Directors, inspiration to the teaching staff and the central trust team, and be able to respond positively to the ever-changing political landscape. The applicant must have the confidence to guide the Trust both safely and boldly through the next period of its development.

For further information or an informal and confidential discussion please contact our advising consultants at GatenbySanderson, Paul Aristides or Victoria Wakerley whose details can be found on this site.

I greatly look forward to receiving your application.

Peter Law
Chair of the Board of Trustees/Directors
