Why join Cranmer?

Why join Cranmer?

We are shaping the landscape of education and we are 100% committed to the why. We know that our schools need the best teachers, support staff and leaders and we make no apology for that. That is why we are committed to teacher training and to quality professional development at all levels. We are locally based, locally committed, locally invested. All our schools benefit from our SCITT, our teaching school hub and our institute for CPD. Our whole philosophy, our story, is steeped in how we work as a collaborative across our schools, region and beyond, so it is also about how we are growing, about how we shape teaching, leadership, support. How we connect people, who together grow capacity and great education.

We shape teaching, we shape support, we shape leaders.

We are prepared and we have invested and planned for sustainable growth, this includes our central business services, our school improvement provision, and the potential for wider support for children’s learning which is needed in areas of high disadvantage. We have built our structures and partnerships over many years, truly working together across our region and beyond and through the growth of our schools and our people. We are realising more than ever how deeply empowering it is for us to work across our schools, in teaching, in leadership, in teaching support and in business support. We eliminate silos, and through alignment in our organisation we elevate our people

This is an exciting time as we continue our mission and grow, we are only just getting started.

Join us:

Let’s shape teaching. Let’s shape leadership. Let’s shape school support.

Because great people build great schools for great education.
