The Priory Learning Trust is looking to recruit two Trustees.

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute towards the strategic direction of a forward-thinking Mult-Academy Trust in the South West.

About The Priory Learning Trust: Students First - Cherishing Staff - Serving Communities

The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT) is an educational charity and Multi-Academy Trust, which supports four primary and three secondary schools in the South West of England. TPLT grew from a passion to provide a first-class education to children in Weston-super-Mare and Highbridge. There are now over 5,000 students and 700 staff within the Trust.

What you will do:

The role of a Trustee is spilt into three broad areas to ensure that The Priory Learning Trust fulfils its duty to its stakeholders and delivers on vision, mission and values; you will work with other Trustees across the following areas:

  • Strategy
  • Financial stewardship and legal compliance
  • Performance

We are currently recruiting for 2 Trustees, one of these roles is a Foundation Trustee. 50% of Trustees are appointed by the Diocese of Bath and Wells and have the additional responsibility of ensuring the Christian ethos of the Trust.

About you: 

Do you have a real interest in or passion for education? Do you believe that the strength and quality of education delivery to young people will drive successful future citizens of the world? If so, joining a MAT as a Trustee could be an excellent opportunity for you to not only share your insights, lived experiences, and passion, but bring those professional skills and knowledge to an organisation which strives to have impact across its communities and for its students and staff.

The Priory Learning Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment
