Jonathan Johnson OBE
CEO Changing Lives Learning Trust
I live and breathe our Trust’s vision and distinction; to succeed in ‘Changing Lives Through Learning’ by providing each child with an education that will give them a preparation for life that is excelled by no other. I am in no doubt that we can achieve this brave and ambitious aim with your help, your passion, and your expertise.
We welcome anyone who shares that vision and who subscribes to the multiplier effect of genuine partnership that enables continual improvement to teach children in a way that is relevant to the modern age; providing moments of awe and wonder, encouraging and enabling every child to aspire to a future that transcends the cultural and social limitations placed upon them.
We are characterised by autonomy within mutual, partnership driven principles, aims and objectives, and within them, our individual and collective determination to accept nothing less than the pinnacle of educational provision. We have a shared professional dissatisfaction, that no matter how good we become we are utterly convinced we can be even better.
Our Trust specialises in celebrating, protecting and enhancing the uniqueness of each individual school. If we’re all the same, our opportunities to learn will be limited. By remaining different, through everyone involved in our academies, rich collaboration, learning and life-long endeavours can begin.
Our highly experienced and skilled Executive Team support leaders to focus on contextual and localised leadership of curriculum, teaching, learning and the professional development and opportunities of their colleagues. Local governing boards are supported to thrive and contribute to the overall direction and decision making of our Trust.
It is a privilege to lead our Trust and the continual development, support and celebration of, hopefully, yours and our collective contributions and accomplishments. Weaving a fully inclusive, collaborative and purposeful focus on our ever improving quality of education holds the promise of changing lives through learning; for the children and communities we serve and the adults who work with them.
