SAST Trustee Vacancies

Would you like to use your skills to improve education for children across Dorset?

Sherborne Area Schools’ Trust have two vacancies for non-executive directors (Trustees) and we would love to hear from you. This is a chance to be part of a diverse, dedicated and exciting team of Trustees where healthy debate is encouraged and everyone is heard.

Our Trust, which was created in June 2017, consists of 17 schools who have come together, based on a shared vision which encompasses the values of partnership and collaboration, equality and distinctiveness, holistic, life-long learning and excellence.  We are a Church of England Multi-Academy Trust which upholds the Christian distinctiveness of our Church schools and those of our non-foundation schools.

SAST is committed to create an ambitious, forward-thinking learning environment for all our pupils, students and staff. There are opportunities for everyone connected to the Trust to grow and develop and therefore fulfil their ambitions.  Our Trustee Board is an enthusiastic, committed and friendly team who welcome a wide range of different skills and experiences to ensure that our continued development is as productive and creative as possible. We are committed to diversity and inclusivity and we welcome applications from people from every background and walk of life. We believe that education embraces our entire community, and we are eager that community voices be heard and be part of the debate and discussion at our board.

SAST has appointed a new CEO to join the Trust as of 1st September 2021 who will bring a wealth of experience and passion for schools. This is an exciting time in our journey and one that you could be a part of!

Please contact Nigel Rees, Chair of the Trust Board via for an informal chat and to find out more information. We would especially welcome applications from individuals with the following:

– a background in Human Resources
– financial skills
– a passion for education and its power to transform young lives.

We look forward to hearing from you.
