Trust Vacancies


The John Milton Academy Trust is an established Trust located in Mid-Suffolk. The Trust anticipates that it will be able to attract families and students by providing education in small, inclusive schools, but ones which can provide a wealth of curriculum opportunities and experiences leading to the highest possible standards of achievement. As the educational landscape undergoes significant change, JMAT wishes to establish a strong reputation building on the success of its constituent schools so that parents, carers and students regard the John Milton Academy Trust as the first choice for academic excellence and personal development.
