As Deputy CEO, Matt is now supporting other schools in the Trust, mentoring newly appointed head teachers and providing leadership and strategic guidance, particularly over data and curriculum.  Matt is a board member of the Alban Teaching School Alliance, Governor and Chair of the Resources Committee at the local Pupil Referral Unit (PRU), as well as a member of the St Albans Strategic Partnership Executive Group.
