The Executive Principal is also the Principal of Catmose College and is responsible for the day-to-day management of the academy in the same way as the other Heads of Schools within the Trust.

In respect of the Federation, the Executive Principal works closely with the CFO to ensure the Trust-based services and any capital projects are of a high standard and meet the needs of our academies. The role includes having strategic oversight of each academy, working with the Heads of School to develop robust improvement plans and quality assurance processes.

The current Executive Principal is a National Leader of Education (NLE), an Ofsted Inspector and a representative of the DfE’s head teachers’ review body, providing advice to the government on its policies. The Executive Principal is therefore well placed to support school-to-school improvement work and to advise academies on their journey to provide an outstanding standard of service.

The Executive Principal reports directly to the Board of Trustees ensuring that the Board is well-informed regarding the performance of the Federation, its academies and the services it provides. The Executive Principal’s performance management is carried out by a sub-committee of the Trust, usually consisting of the Chair and two other Trustees alongside an external education advisor.
