The Altius Trust

Welcome to The Altius Trust.

We have two academies in the Trust, MEA in Wythenshawe and MEA Central in Fallowfield both purpose built campuses with world class facilities.

I am proud to work in conjunction with our partners who are from some of the most innovative and successful organisations in the UK and all of whom have a strong commitment to Manchester. Our partners help lead the Trust in various ways, from holding seats on our Board to running workshops and mentoring students to enhance their entrepreneurial and networking skills, and all the while contributing to our vision of a Fantastic Future for All.

I have spent many years in education, working in school improvement services at local authority level immediately prior to joining MEA in 2010. After holding a number of roles including Senior Vice Principal and Trust Curriculum Director, I was appointed as Principal of MEA and interim CEO of the Altius Trust in September 2018, and in January 2019 appointed permanently to the role of CEO of the Altuis Trust. I am committed to continually developing the Trust and ensuring we have two thriving academies which meet the needs of their neighbourhoods providing a Fantastic Future for All our students.

I look forward to welcoming you at one of our academies soon.
