Two Norfolk school academy trusts are to share a chief executive as part of their latest move towards working in partnership.
Don Evans, chief executive at Boudica Schools Trust, has also been appointed part time interim chief executive of neighbouring The Yare Education Trust until the end of 2021.
The two trusts oversee 17 academies in Norwich, North Walsham, Great Yarmouth and Stalham, covering secondary, primary and special school provision and were already exploring partnership working.
Mr Evans said: “I’m very pleased to be given the chance to work with another excellent trust.
“The education landscape is still evolving and it is important that trusts remain agile and open to change, so it makes complete sense for us to use this unique opportunity to investigate all possibilities for partnership working.”
