HEART Academies is a dynamic and focused multi-academy trust made up of four schools in Bedford. HEART’s vision is to develop into a nationally known best practice hub, harnessing the educational expertise offered by its sponsor, The Harpur Trust, which operates four highly successful independent schools in Bedford.

HEART Academies now seeks an inspiring Chief Executive to grow its reach and impact further. The appointee will shape the evolution of the Trust as it seeks to build on its initial successes in bringing together a Secondary Academy and three Primary Schools in addressing disadvantage and to achieve outstanding outcomes for all pupils. Working with a newly appointed Chair, HEART’s next Chief Executive will embed an ethos of collaboration and continuous improvement and an entrepreneurial infrastructure.

The new Chief Executive will be a creative, determined and empathetic leader with a track record of success in managing complexity and effecting positive change. She or he will be a keen strategist, with the intellect and personal authority to lead and develop a MAT; and have the open communication style to build close connections with The Harpur Trust and wider partners. The appointee will be flexible, energetic, entrepreneurial and resilient, and will demonstrate a profound resonance with the transformative power of education. Prior experience in education is not essential and the Trust welcomes applications from candidates with commercial, charitable, private-sector and public-sector backgrounds.
