Wellspring Academy Trust are looking for Governors.

At Wellspring we believe that outstanding schools are built on the firm foundations of outstanding leadership, enabled by effective governance with robust oversight and assurance. Good governance is at the heart of Wellspring. Our governance structures bring rigour, challenge and accountability.

Those involved in our governance at all levels share a common objective – a determination to secure the best possible life chances for the children and young people in our care.

We are currently looking for Governors for academies across North, South and West Yorkshire and welcome volunteers from a variety of backgrounds who can offer skills and experience in areas ranging from Safeguarding and SEND through to Health & Safety, IT and Finance. We can offer comprehensive support and guidance for anybody new to school Governance. If you want to work with, and – more importantly – contribute to a culture like this, we would love to hear from you.

Mark Wilson, CEO, said:

“My sincere thanks for your interest in Wellspring. Our success so far has been founded on the principle of professional freedom enhanced by rigorous Quality Assurance and support systems provided by the Trust. I take enormous pride in the fact that each of our Academies has its own unique identity and way of being. What unites Wellspring Academies is our accord on a broad set of principles. We believe in respect, in valuing people, in an inclusive and ethical approach and in continually striving to become even better. We are convinced that all of these elements are essential to providing the very best that we can for our young people.”
