Formed in 2014, Kenton Schools Academy Trust currently comprises two schools in the heart of Newcastle; Kenton School, a very large, well-established, successful 11-19 comprehensive secondary school, and Studio West, an innovative 11-19 school based on the studio school concept.


An exciting and unique opportunity has arisen for an exceptional and inspirational leader to join us in the role of Chief Executive Officer.  As strategic lead and Chief Accounting Officer for the Trust, the successful candidate will work with the Trust Board, Local Governing Bodies and Academy Principals to develop and implement the Trust’s strategic vision, whilst ensuring financial and statutory requirements are met. 


We are seeking candidates with a proven track record of highly effective system leadership, and a background in supporting and driving school improvement, combined with a demonstrable record of success in organisational, people, resource and financial management.


We are seeking candidates with a thorough understanding of the local and national issues surrounding the provision of secondary education, combined with the professional credibility and the interpersonal, negotiation and influencing skills to engage all stakeholders positively.


But, more importantly, we are seeking candidates with an absolute commitment to our values and ethos, ensuring that all students across our schools achieve their potential, whatever their barriers.


In return, we offer the opportunity to play a key role in shaping the future of not only our two current schools but the future of our Trust as a whole.
