CORE Education Trust is a values-driven multi-academy trust rich in cultural and social diversity. Responsible for four academies in Birmingham, the Trust was set up to innovate through adversity and to challenge the conventional boundaries of what is possible for our students. Motivated and inspired by the success of our students, our ambition goes beyond textbooks and whiteboards, we are proud to work with the young people of Birmingham.
This role will be based at Rockwood Academy, which is an 11-16 co-educational school. We have the highest expectations and aspirations for students in our care and each school unapologetically puts students’ interests at the heart of every decision it makes.
