Welcome,

I am proud and privileged to be the CEO of Laidlaw Schools Trust, a growing multi academy trust in the North East of England, serving children and families in the west of Newcastle and in Pennywell, Sunderland.

We pride ourselves in being a progressive, inclusive trust that supports every child to develop their talents whatever they may be and to reach their academic potential. It is important that as a learning organisation we adapt and change to the needs of our pupils. We take care to value and develop all colleagues to make sure they can do their very best for children across the Trust’s schools.
