Whether you are based in our head office or in one of our 54 academies, you will be playing a critical role in delivering outstanding outcomes for our young people.

The longer I’ve been here, the more I’ve appreciated that what we do makes a difference. I appreciate that collectively, our achievements are making sure that the quality of education is incredibly high for disadvantaged children across London and Essex.
