The Brooke Weston Trust is a family of primary and secondary schools in Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire. Our aim is quite simple; to provide high quality education and learning opportunities across our schools and to ensure that every child, no matter their background or starting point, leaves us with the necessary qualifications, skills and self-belief to fulfil their potential.
We have five simple, yet effective core values that underpin all our work:
Therefore, we are committed to transforming schools within our Trust, to providing students with the ‘tickets for life’ for further education, employment or other destinations beyond school.
We are proud to educate more than 7,000 students and employ more than 1,000 staff. We have a growing reputation, both within the communities in which we operate, but also at a national level where the Brooke Weston Trust is seen as a ‘can-do’ organisation, taking on the challenge and responsibility of making a difference in some of the country’s more challenging areas.
We are equally as ambitious for our staff and promote a strong culture of professional collaboration and continuous improvement.
Teaching with the Brooke Weston Trust can be an incredibly rewarding and satisfying career, that lets you see the real difference you are making to students’ lives and our wider communities. A teaching career also comes with the added benefits of job security, a very strong social team atmosphere, and the opportunity to develop independence and responsibility.
Being part of a multi-academy Trust also gives our employees access to a wide range of high-quality training and experience of working in a diverse range of educational settings. We also have our own Teaching School that delivers training and professional guidance to teachers at every stage of the profession.
