Working for our Trust

Thank you for taking an interest in the current vacancies we have here at the St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi-Academy Trust (CMAT).


As CEO, I want to provide you with an introduction to our Trust and to give you a flavour of what working within our Trust would be like.


Firstly, you do not need to be a Catholic to work in our Trust. There are certain reserved positions, which require someone to be Catholic, i.e. CEO, Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher, Subject Leader/Head of RE and Lay Chaplain but other than that a respect for our ethos and a willingness to participate in what we do is all that is required.


Everybody who works within our Trust, in a school or central offices is in some way a teacher. Whether you are the headteacher, a classroom teacher, receptionist, cook, cleaner, caretaker, HR or Finance manager/assistant you have an impact on the children we serve. We are a family and building a community which supports and upholds our gospel values of tolerance, respect, compassion and love are central to our success going forward.


This is a hugely important time in the life of our Trust. As of 1st September 2018, we have brought together 25 schools from Derby City, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Stockport and Nottinghamshire (of which 20 are primary and 5 are secondary) to work within the Trust. 


As CEO of the Trust I understand the huge responsibility I have to ensure that every child and young person benefits from the establishment of this new Trust. 


The St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi-Academy Trust has been formed to preserve, maintain and develop Catholic education in the areas served by its academies. We are committed to providing the highest quality of education for every child and young person we serve.


We have a vision for our Trust that goes beyond our individual academies and that changes our perceptions from my academy to our academy. Working together through the Trust, each academy will benefit educationally from the expertise within the Trust as a whole and practically from the services procured and provided centrally. By formalizing the links between secondary and primary schools we will provide a stable, challenging and consistent education through the phases to those pupils and families we serve. 


Our Trust will be a dynamic entity, which will grow and adapt with those who are working and learning within it. It will respond to the needs of its community while adhering to the Catholic principles upon which its member academies are founded.


We have been given a wonderful opportunity to shape the future of Catholic education for around 8,000 young people who attend our schools across the Trust.  Schools are special places where we get the chance to improve the lives of young people in a unique way.  The best schools are places where we develop young minds; we must focus on growth not just in the brain but the growth of character, the development of the whole person.


I hope you are excited by this vision of what we want to achieve and if you feel you want to be part of this, I would encourage you to apply for a position within our Trust.
