remier New Schools was established to meet the current and future requirements of schools, single and multi-academy Trusts. On one level, these requirements are straightforward; to enlist the support of professionals that bring the experience of where education policy and practice has been and, more importantly, where it is heading. While every organisation operates in an environment as unique as the children and young people it serves, there are common challenges that are best faced together with those that have overcome them, personally and on behalf of a range of other organisations.
The Founding Directors of Premier New Schools bring together significant experience in educational policy and delivery stretching back prior to the Education Reform Act of 1988. More importantly, the Directors are currently working at the forefront of education delivery both as consultants and also as active members of high-performing maintained schools and academy Trusts. All advice we offer has a complete grounding in current practice allowing our clients to make informed decisions, be it from the best governance structure for a new MAT in Suffolk to a strategy for recruiting top-quality STEM professionals for a new school in outer London.
