“Our plans are ambitious, and our drive and determination will make them reality.” Steve Docking CEO of North West Academies Trust

North West Academies Trust is one of the country’s top performing trusts, with a proven track record of improving schools, because we understand the importance of every member of our team.

Our determination to provide pupils with the best possible education is only growing stronger – and we are always looking for the most skilled, driven and passionate people to join us.

Already, our catalogue of successes include:

  • St Martin’s Academy, Chester, which was rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted within a year of opening in 2013.
  • Delamere Academy, Northwich, which is ranked the highest performing primary in Cheshire West and Chester and in England’s top ten ‘Non Fee Paying Schools’.
  • Oak View Academy, Winsford, was the second worst primary in the country when it first joined the trust in 2014 – it is now rated ‘good’ by Ofsted.
  • Ellesmere Primary School, which was rated ‘good’ by Ofsted in 2019.

Now we have plans in place to make the same dramatic changes at our three newest schools: Rudheath Senior Academy, Weaverham Primary Academy and Grosvenor Park Academy.

To challenge and influence the progression at all our schools, we need a forward-thinking, driven team of staff.
