Mary McKeeman has taken the difficult decision to leave her current position as COO to spend more time with her family. I’m sure you can appreciate that wouldn’t have been an easy decision, but she has said she is leaving knowing that the schools are in good hands and that dedicated, focused and inspirational leaders are working within them. I know you will all join me in wishing Mary well with her new venture.
Whilst this news will inevitability involve change, the Trust board want to ensure a seamless transition and a priority on business as usual. The executive leadership group are working hard to ensure the focus remains on supporting all of our schools to continue their drive for better outcomes for all of our children. I am honoured and humbled to have been asked by the board to lead the Trust with immediate effect. An offer I was excited to accept. Across our Trust we have supportive and talented teams. You are all hardworking, dedicated and incredibly committed. You not only ensure the best for your schools, but also the wider success of the Trust as a whole. Together, I know we can achieve even greater success.
Kind regards, Mrs Heidi Hoskin
