We believe that great teachers make great schools, and that great schools can change the lives of young people.

Rich in cultural and social diversity, CORE Education Trust’s academies challenge boundaries and make a difference.

Our students deserve the best: people who embrace our values and are role models for our students; people who inspire others and help provide students with the education, skills and experiences to not only achieve excellence, but thrive.

As an employer, we care passionately about the wellbeing of those who work with us too. We’re committed to the personal and professional development of our staff, and offer a range of competitive benefits.
