Cleeve School – Recruitment of a new Chair of the Board of Trustees


At Cleeve School our vision is structured around our three underpinning values of aspiring, collaborating and transforming. We are passionate about providing an exceptional educational experience for all our students to enable them to be the best they can be and to prepare them for modern living, learning and working, post school. We are an ambitious school with high expectations for ourselves and our  students. This ambition also extends to the growth of the school, including leading its own multi-academy trust.


 Cleeve School is currently recruiting for a new Trustee who would transition into the role of the Chair of the Board of Trustees.   


 The Members of the Trust are looking to recruit a new Trustee to the Cleeve School Board with a view to them becoming the Chair of  Trustees at the beginning of the 2023/24 academic year, with a transition period as Vice Chair for the first year.


The Chair of the Board of Trustees is a leadership role that provides clear direction to the Board who work as a team to challenge, support and contribute to the strategic leadership of the school.  It is a voluntary role and we anticipate it takes 10-15 hours a month to fulfil.  It is a vitally important role within the school and the right candidate will not only need the time to carry out the role, but will also need to posses the necessary skills to lead an enthusiastic, experience and award winning Board of Trustees.  You will need to build a close working relationship with the Executive Head based on mutual trust and respect.
