Working for us

Working in the trust

Being part of the Extend Learning Academies Network means that all of our schools have comprehensive back-office support available to them. Having a central team takes away the bulk of finance, hr and estates administration meaning that schools can focus on the education of children.


Being part of a larger organisation, our schools benefit from financial gains and bulk buying power. This results in schools having a reduction in their individual school costs allowing more flexibility with their budget.


Teaching and learning

In many multi-academy trusts, the main benefit to the curriculum and consequently to teaching and learning comes from opportunities for collaboration. It is the same for Extend Learning Academies Network schools. Sharing subject expertise and ideas is invaluable.


Our teachers are able to consistently broaden their skills in foundation subjects such as art, music and sports/PE. Our Extend-Ed team ensure quality, accessible continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities, for staff at all stages of their teaching journey.


Support and development

Being part of Extend Learning Academies Network means that our schools always have someone to talk to at all levels. Staff are both challenged and supported. We find it really helps to discuss and share ideas which leads to an improvement in practice. Individual experience and specialist knowledge can be developed by both networking and by having opportunities to move to a role at the same level in another school.


Non-teaching staff can also access continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities and staff networks. Sharing expertise, experiences and ideas whatever area of education you work in is valuable. For those who have not worked in education before, we welcome your skills learned and developed from other industries and businesses.
