Why work for us?
Small but seriously ambitious, we want the very best people to transform the lives of children and communities in our Trust, through inspirational education. Based in the north east of England we take pride in knowing our schools and communities really well. We therefore want to recruit excellent people that share our values to ensure every child whatever their background, talents or interests aims high, achieves well and progresses successfully.
Sponsored generously by the Laidlaw Foundation, LST offers excellent career opportunities, extensive professional development and great working environments. The LST team across all seven of our schools and in the central office, are dedicated and ambitious to drive the Trust forward and we would encourage like-minded people to explore the benefits of working for LST.
I am proud and privileged to be the COO of Laidlaw Schools Trust, a growing multi academy trust in the North East of England, serving children and families in the west of Newcastle, Pennywell and South Hylton in Sunderland and Sedgefield in County Durham.
