Our Chief Executive Officer is Richard Evans, who provides us with a wealth of knowledge and experience in education. He is, and will remain, Director of Education at GLF Schools, but has a distinct, separate responsibility reporting to the Oaks Board.
This creates a link which will facilitate a close working relationship with GLF, one of the most successful multi academy trusts in the country. It will allow us to access a range of services, including access to specialist staff in areas such as school improvement, business management, finance, HR, IT, behaviour support, recruitment and bulk-buying discounts
Oaks remains an independent Multi Academy Trust with its own Board of Directors accountable to the Department of Education. Thus our Head Teachers and Local Governing Bodies retain their autonomy, ethos and staff while benefiting from the expertise found in a larger organisation.
