Join One Of Our School Local Governing Bodies! Make a Difference in Education!

Are you passionate about education and committed to making a positive impact in your community? We want you to join our team of dedicated individuals as a School Governor!

About Us:
Wildern Multi Academy Trust is a thriving educational institution committed to providing high-quality education to our students. As we continue to grow and excel, we are looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our Governing Bodies and contribute to the success of our schools.

The ethos of the Trust is based on its founding principles of Care, Opportunity, and Quality.

Care - We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and enriching environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and personally. We believe in fostering a strong partnership between parents, teachers, and the school staff to ensure the best possible educational experience for every child.

Opportunity - We offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities, clubs, and sports programs to help our students explore their interests and talents beyond the classroom, to open young minds to different experiences, challenge their perceptions and develop new skills and passions.

Quality - Our dedicated educators are committed to providing a high-quality education that fosters a love for learning in every child. We have a rigorous and extensive curriculum that is designed to challenge and engage students at every level but more importantly for them to have a continual thirst, hunger and inquisitiveness for lifelong learning.

The Trust comprises of three schools, two secondary schools; Wildern School and Deer Park, the latter opening in 2021 and a primary school, Boorley Park, which opened 2019. There are three tiers of governance oversight, the Members, the Trust Board (Trustees) and the Local Governing Body (Governors).

We currently have governor vacancies in all of our schools, Deer Park in Botley, Wildern School in Hedge End and Boorley Park Primary School in Boorley Green. All three schools are within a short drive of each other.
