Hi, I’m Jo Morgan, the proud CEO of Shaw Education Trust.

We place high achievement at the heart of everything we do. We are determined that no individual has their opportunities limited by their background, or by their ability. We are focused on harnessing the power of people to affect positive change for our children and young adults. We work closely with children, leaders, teachers and support teams, to create their individual best futures: one size fits one. Education should be an exciting space, buzzing with vibrancy, dynamism and unlimited potential. Innovation and entrepreneurialism fuel our passion, enabling creativity and re-conceptualisation to be agilely applied to context and circumstance. We love a pirate!

Far too often education becomes competitive; combative and driven by perverse incentives. At Shaw Education Trust we do not believe it should be that way, we know that great strength comes from co-operation and working together.  An excellent education, in a supportive environment, is what every student attending one of our academies will experience. Central to this is the support we provide to our staff teams, this enables them to continually develop their knowledge, practice and expertise. By offering high quality training and research-based opportunities our colleagues are well motivated, highly valued, and incredibly driven professionals. We are proud of them! 

Our learning community is further enhanced by ensuring that we have a mix of academies (primary, secondary and specialist) within our Trust; all with an equal voice. This allows us to create a conglomerate of folk with a wide range of valuable experience and knowledge, thereby ensuring rich collaborative opportunities across our Trust, alongside a cadre of proven impact. 

We value and enjoy the privilege of every day we have with our children and young adults; they are precious cargo. We recognise that our academies are just one step in their educational and life journey. We take seriously the responsibility to ensure all are equipped to take their right next step. Accordingly we offer a range of support to address life beyond school, develop students' independence, prepare for university, apprenticeships, or the world of work. The only thing that counts is our learners’ success.

We look forward to welcoming you.
