Play a part in the creation of the future

NED at Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust

I took the opportunity for a non-exec role with a local trust as it’s not only a great opportunity to bring valued experience and skills to an organisation but knowing that input may play a part in the creation of the future, especially for those children whom the trust prepares for it, provides a great sense of satisfaction.

We have been particularly impressed by the high calibre of candidates

Leave things better than you find them

Kim-Adele Platts, Non-executive director

I am delighted to have started with the trust.  Since having my little girl the desire to try and leave things better than I found them has been even stronger, and the chance to work with the academy and help shape a better future for our children’s education is such an amazing privilege.

Exceptional Education for all
