The Brooke Weston Trust Leadership Academy is an exciting initiative designed to nurture talent and ensure good succession planning across our family of schools. The Leadership Academy Steering Group works with the CEO of the Trust to put together a programme of training for staff at all levels who are showing they have high potential to be future leaders within the Trust. The Leadership Academy’s training offer includes bespoke training events, personal coaching and career planning advice as well as opportunities to shadow senior leaders via secondments to other Trust schools in different contexts.

The Leadership Academy Steering Group is chaired by LLE Mrs Jane MacDonald, the experienced Principal of Gretton Primary School who has led many professional development training courses at the Brooke Weston Teaching School.

If staff wish to put forward topics and ideas for the Steering Group to consider then please send your suggestions to Mrs MacDonald at
