Employee Benefits

Providing inspiration and support

We believe that bringing people together to celebrate success as well as during more challenging times to support and inspire others, is key to providing an environment where everyone can flourish and experiment with new ideas. 

Continuous professional development

We want you to grow and develop with us. To help you to continue to improve, we offer a range of opportunities for networking and CPD to support your chosen career path whether this is progressing in your leadership role by completing NPQML or NPQH, training to teach with School Direct, completing an Apprenticeship or simply keeping ahead of the latest trends in your field. 

All of our people have access to online training resources allowing you to pick from a wide range of training including data protection, safeguarding, fire safety, preventing bullying and health and safety. 

Industry leading employee assistance program

We want to take care of you. All of our people can access a leading support helpline, advice and services to talk through any personal or professional concerns on legal, health, financial, wellbeing and other issues. 

Company pension scheme

We understand the importance of preparing for your retirement. All of our people are enrolled into either the Teacher’s Pension Scheme (teachers) or the Local Government Pension Scheme (support staff) with both schemes providing three times salary life assurance cover for that peace of mind. If you don’t want to be a member, you can opt-out. 

Flexible opportunities

Time off to spend with your family and friends and pursuing your hobbies is important. We provide flexible opportunities for part time, job share and term time only roles across the Trust. 

Holidays

For those who work all year round, we provide a minimum of 24 days holiday plus bank holidays, with additional days added after five years’ service, so that you can take time to relax and recharge. 

Occupational sick pay

For those times when you are not well enough to be with us, we provide occupational sick pay to help you financially. One less thing to worry about. 

Occupational maternity/paternity/adoption pay

When new arrivals join your family, we want you to spend time together and provide occupational pay (subject to qualifying criteria) in addition to statutory payments to support you during the important early days. 

Discounts

We realise that every day costs are increasing and this can create financial pressures. We provide a range of discounts for supermarkets, high street stores, cinemas, days out and much more, to help your salary go further. 

Cycle scheme*

We want our people to be fit and well, both physically and mentally and encourage physical exercise to support this. We offer a cycle scheme to enable you to save money when purchasing a bicycle, with payments deducted from your salary each month. 

Car lease scheme*

Our students need our people to be able to get to work reliably every day and we’d like you to do this in the most environmentally friendly way. To help, we offer a range of vehicles through a car leasing scheme with payments deducted from your salary each month.
