Trust Central Services

Trust Shared Services

The Trust is very proud of its distinctive shared services model. Based at our Trust HQ in Normanton, roughly in the geographical centre of our MAT, the Trust services team fully supports our colleges, secondary schools and primary schools, mainly from one central location.   

All colleges access the full range of Trust shared services, whilst our schools take advantage of HR, finance, Health and Safety, GDPR, IT, bid writing and marketing, retaining other services at their own site. Some other Trust shared services staff are located at each individual college/school sites, such as IT support.  

The shared services model frees principals, senior leaders and subject teachers from the business end of education, allowing them to concentrate on what they do best: providing an outstanding student experience by ensuring excellent teaching for learning. The shared services model also provides economies of scale and efficiencies, resulting in strong financial sustainability for the Trust, benefitting every student and staff member involved.
