The Board of Trustees is very pleased to be able to offer a great opportunity for an ambitious individual to lead the team at Kingstone Academy Trust.

We are looking for someone who will retain the key aspects of our ethos and, in addition, will provide visionary leadership for the Trust, which currently consists of Kingstone High School and Kingstone and Thruxton Primary School.

The Board of Trustees is proud of the progress Kingstone Academy Trust has made over recent years, and we are ambitious for the future and believe that the Trust is well placed to make further considerable advances in the coming years. This is a fantastic opportunity for an equally ambitious individual to take on the role of Executive Headteacher and to lead the next phase of our development.
