Welcome 

from the CEO

I am honoured to be Chief Executive for ESSA Academy Trust and to be leading it as we begin to emerge from the pandemic.  

 

Having been a teacher before I became an executive leader over thirty years ago I have experienced many turbulent times in education and know how the best schools ensure childrens’life chances are protected.

 

ESSA academies have done this with great distinction to the benefit of pupils , their families and the local community. I am proud to be able to play a role in the Trust.

 

As Chief Executive my job is to support the academies leadership to ensure we do the very best we can for our pupils.

 

The ESSA mission ‘All will succeed ‘ is heartfelt by all who work in and for our great academies.

 

Dame Kathy August DBE
