The Priory Federation of Academies Trust is searching for a new Head of The Priory Academy LSST after making the decision to divide its leadership role into two posts.
Ian Jones has held the dual position of Chief Executive Officer of the Federation and Head of The Priory Academy LSST since March 2012.
He will assume the post of CEO from September 1.
Howard Gee, Chair of the Priory Federation of Academies Trust, said: “The move will put the trust on the strongest possible footing for the future as is considers opportunities for growth and prepares for the significant educational changes signalled by the government last week.
“The headship at The Priory Academy LSST, which Mr Jones has held since 2008 and will continue to hold until August 31, will be advertised nationally during the next month, with a view to an appointment being made for a September 1 start.
“The trust will be looking for a head of exceptional calibre to maintain LSST’s respected status and continue the excellent work carried out by Mr Jones over the last eight years.”
