Welcome from our CEO, Angela Ransby

Thank you for your interest in applying to work for the Raedwald Trust.   

 The Raedwald Trust is a thriving, inspirational Trust situated in the heart of communities across Suffolk and delivers exceptional education to pupils of all ages who require personalised bespoke education pathways. 

 I have a genuine interest and enthusiasm for learning and I am passionate about education and working with young people. Making a difference in the lives of young people is what brought me into this profession. It is my belief that all pupils should be successful in schools and that schools should serve the needs of their communities. Staff, governors and trustees at the Raedwald Trust are ambitious for every pupil, and this is evident in the day-to-day life of the Trust. 

 Learning and Teaching is at the heart of all we do. We believe that the Raedwald Trust should be a centre of excellence with high expectations, positive pupil attitudes, good behaviour and a clear focus on raising standards and ensuring progress for all. We do our utmost to create a culture where every pupil feels valued and where every member of staff is committed to pupils achieving their very best. This is achieved by fostering an ethos firmly rooted in social justice, civic values and lifelong learning.  

The Raedwald Trust values its staff as professionals and we provide them with access to a wide range of CPD and training opportunities.   We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all of our staff to share this commitment.
