• Trustee Testimonials
  • “I’ve always been passionate about education and about improving the outcomes for young people in our society. As the Chief Executive of a large further education college Group, I have witnessed the truly transformational impact of a great education and I wanted to help make that a reality for even more young people.
    As a Trustee, I’m able to deliver a real and tangible difference to young people’s lives, ensuring that they get the education they deserve and that their life chances are enhanced through its power. I’m really proud to be able to help in this way, and hope that the communities I serve benefit from my input.”

    “I chose to be a Trustee within EKC Schools Trust as I believe in the model of trust formed, whereby schools work in partnership whilst keeping their own unique character.
    I am delighted to be part of a Trust really making a positive difference to the lives of local children, their families, and communities. Being a trustee allows me to make use of my professional experience and keeps my knowledge of educational changes current.
    I enjoy being part of a team that brings such a variety and wealth of experience together for such an inspiring purpose – the future life chances of children.”

    I particularly like using the skills and experience developed over a number of years to support school leaders and also working with a wide range of like-minded people who all share the same goal, to make schools better places for pupils and the wider
