Paradigm Trust was formed to ensure that we can leave a legacy of high achievement, excellence in all we do and a set of values that underpins all leadership decisions.

To match our ambitions, we will need the support of dedicated and professional individuals who share our values.

Ethos

The ethos of the trust is very simple: it is that every child is entitled to an outstanding education, with equal access to knowledge, skills, opportunities, aspirations, life chances and dignity. Every child deserves the best from the schools within the trust and we aim to provide this in many ways, the most important of which are a well-planned and taught curriculum, in an environment where the safety and well-being of pupils are paramount. The trust considers strong partnership work, with the communities its schools serve, as essential to achieving its excellent results. The trust encourages parents and/or carers to support their children at home by encouraging learning, good conduct and high expectations.

National reputation

The Executive Principal of the trust is Amanda Phillips CBE, a very experienced leader renowned for her tireless work to raise the achievement of pupils, often in the most challenging of circumstances. Her work as a National Leader for Education brings her into contact with a range of educational settings and organisations across the country. Her dedication, focus and success have resulted in securing a glowing reputation for the trust, both nationally and internationally. The schools regularly host VIP visits including Ministers, DfE officials and foreign delegations.

Career opportunities

We are frequently searching for committed and ambitious individuals who are able to maintain and enhance the excellent provision we have within the trust schools. People who are able to uphold the vision of the trust and deliver consistently in a high-pressure environment.

We are committed to providing our staff with ongoing professional development, guidance and advice from the Executive Principal alongside our centralised services – the Human Resources team, the Finance team and the Senior Administrative team.

Paradigm Trust has been approved by the Department for Education (DfE) to take full responsibility for up to two more schools. This will bring tremendous opportunities in the future for dedicated and professional individuals wishing to join our organisation.

If you think you have the drive, enthusiasm, skills and stamina to deliver excellence, we encourage you to get in touch or check back here regularly to see if any vacancies are available.
