Earlier this term, over 400 of our Trust teaching staff attended the Marches Academy Conference 2022 – giving them the chance to network, embrace expertise and engage with our vision of the school of the future. Colleagues from across our 10 schools delivered the key workshops – harnessing the talent of our staff across the Trust. Our keynote was a real expert in the field. Mick Waters has probably changed secondary schools more profoundly than anyone in the past 20 years. Offering this opportunity bears testament that at our Trust we stand by our principle of investing in our staff and providing high quality professional learning to drive improvement.
