Trustee Opportunities at The Olympus Academy Trust

The Olympus Academy Trust is responsible and accountable for the education of more than 6500 students between the ages of 3 and 19 and for the employment and support of approximately 800 staff in 10 schools (and one more yet to open).


As a multi-academy trust, The Olympus Academy Trust depends on having a Trust Board and Executive Leadership Team which is able to support and challenge each of its schools. Their values also emphasise the critical role which is played at local school level, where they have Trust Governors who are much closer to the school community – understanding its particular needs and having a real opportunity to make a difference to learners.


They are now seeking three new Trustees to join their Board, which is accountable for all the schools in the Olympus Academy Trust. Providing oversight and supporting the leadership team of the Trust with the ultimate aim of improving learner progress and outcomes, they are looking for Trustees with the following experience/specialisms:


1 – Trustee senior leadership, Non-Exec, Trustee, Governor experience with a view of              becoming the Chair of the Board in 2026.

2 – Trustee with HR skills

3 – Trustee with Secondary Education experience/knowledge


A key part of your role, if appointed, will be to hold the Executive Leaders to account and provide strategic direction to help all schools work together to form a high-quality 4-19 offer across the Trust.


You can expect to develop a range of both new and existing skills. Training is provided and there is a wealth of independent training providers which offer opportunities for professional development.

This is a unique opportunity to positively influence children and young people’s lives!
