Chair of the Board

Could you help transform education, having an influence nationally?

Advantage Schools, a School Trust,
require a Chair of the Board

Advantage Schools is an ambitious school trust (also known as multi-academy trust) determined to play a key role in the emerging school trust landscape. The Chair is the key leadership role at Advantage Schools. We are a School Trust of two schools – Elstow School and Bedford Free School – and we have ambitious targets for expansion. We need the drive, challenge, help and support of an effective Chair to do so. This is an opportunity to make a difference to thousands of young peoples’ lives!
Advantage Schools was created in Bedford, an area that has had historic poor academic performance in both primary and secondary phases. Families in and around Bedford deserve better, and hence Advantage Schools exists to ‘run a family of phenomenal schools’.
We want the very best! There is an application process and a person specification for new Directors at Advantage Schools.

Please contact Simon Campbell, company secretary, on for an application form and person specification.
