Governor Vacancies 

West Norfolk Academies Trust aims to challenge and support a small group of schools to provide an excellent education for the young people of West Norfolk.

The Trust works in a supportive partnership with Primary and Secondary schools with each school maintaining their unique identity and ethos.

In order to ensure the schools continue to offer the very best education and opportunities to the students and staff, the Trust is always interested to hear from those who are interested in becoming Governors.   Governors are essential for the effectiveness and success of the schools.

Governors come from a range of different backgrounds, but all share a common interest of wanting the best possible education for young people in this area.

If you have a passion for improving the life chances of children and can offer supportive challenge to the adership of West Norfolk Academies Schools to help us to fulfil our vision, please let us know either by contacting us via the following email address:-
