Chief Executive Officer appointment
I am delighted to announce that following a rigorous and diligent recruitment process, the Trust Board has appointed Phil Hanson to the positions of Chief Executive Officer and Accounting Officer, effective from September 2023, upon the retirement of Clive Corbett. This role is based on the equivalent of two days per week and Phil will retain his position as Headteacher at Pershore High School for the equivalent of 3 days per week.
Against a very strong field of internal and external applicants, Phil demonstrated a clear vision for the future of Avonreach Academy Trust, with a plan for controlled and considered growth, building upon the foundations laid down during Clive's tenure, whilst sustaining and developing educational outcomes for all of the pupils both within Avonreach schools, the Pershore pyramid and further afield.
Plans to re-organise and strengthen the Senior Leadership Team at Pershore High School, including the recruitment of an additional Deputy Head, are already underway and will be communicated in due course.
We look forward to an exciting new chapter for Avonreach Academy Trust under his leadership.
