The Fells Multi Academy Trust are seeking new Trustees and Governors to join our strong governance team. The Fells Trust believes in providing:
- Excellent Education for All
- Exceptional Leadership and Workforce
- Enhanced pupil wellbeing and development
- Outstanding facilities and learning environments
- Strong governance
Our core aims are built on the strong values of: Excellence, Inclusion, Respect and Integrity and all of our work is focussed on supporting students to achieve their potential and go beyond expectations.
We are now seeking new Governors, Trustees and Members to join our Governance Structure within our individual schools as well as within the Trust itself. Have you the skills and the time to join us and be a part of our students’ futures?
As well as being a fulfilling role, helping young people to make the most of their opportunities, being a Trustee or Governor is also a development opportunity, enabling you to hone the business, personal and leadership skills, required in work and life.
The Fells Trust serves the three schools of George Hastwell Special School on Walney Island, Walney School and The Queen Katherine School in Kendal and also works with other schools within the locality and beyond.
It has a strong Trust team which supports the schools to provide the best education to all students, with wellbeing at the core for both students and staff. The Trust provides services to the schools enabling them to be successful, well run, financially viable workplaces.
We have a clear vision to further develop our Trust and work with more schools, and we need people who share this vision and have the skills that will help us to succeed in not only moving all of our schools to a Good Ofsted rating, but in providing greater opportunities for students so that they can leave school academically strong, resilient in themselves, and ready for their future challenges and next steps.
The future of our Trust is bright and exciting and now is an excellent time to contemplate joining us. Full descriptions of each of the roles is available on our website, The Fells Trust - Governance Opportunities and more information can be requested from our Chair, Beth Curl, or from our CEO, Paul Slater. We hope that you are as enthusiastic as we are about the future for students in South Lakeland and that you want to be a part of helping to make a positive impact on the lives of students for many years to come.
