WHO WE ARE
The Kenton Schools Academy Trust, formed in 2015, is a growing, passionate trust in the North East of England. Our eyes are firmly fixed on providing the best education possible for young people in our city, our region and nationally.
Our Trust currently incorporates two secondary schools in the west end of Newcastle: Kenton School, a well-established, very large 11-19 comprehensive academy, and Studio West, an innovative 11-19 studio school. The Trust has overcome a number of challenges over the last few years: our leadership teams and our academies’ passionate staff have worked tirelessly in revitalising our finances and developing our curricula to the point where, in Ofsted terms, from a starting point of two RI judgements in 2016, one academy is now ‘good’ and the other is, we believe, well on its way to achieving a ‘good’ judgement. Both academy sixth forms received ‘good’ judgements in their latest 2019 inspections.
Every day we have the opportunity to work with students from a range of different and diverse backgrounds, and to provide a dynamic approach to learning. Our academies share the expertise and experience of the professionals employed by the Trust. To support education, the Trust provides first-class, in-house finance, human resources and IT technical support services.
Our Trust’s main objectives are encompassed in its vision statement, which is:
'Through the provision of high quality inclusive education, the Trust will support and enable all our learners to believe in themselves, to succeed in life and aspire to be all that they can be. In achieving this we will keep children and young adults at the centre of everything we do.'
To fulfil this vision, we are fully committed to ensuring the highest quality education that we can provide for our students in every phase of their education; providing outstanding leadership in our schools and across the Trust to deliver our vision and supporting our communities to ensure parents and carers have the confidence to make us their chosen provider.
This is a new and exciting opportunity for an experienced and dynamic Chief Executive Officer to lead our Trust, continuing to establish our foundations and taking us into out next phase of development .
