New School Canterbury seeks new Trustee with legal expertise

Closing Date
30 July 2021
Canterbury, Kent
Time Commitment
Trustees meet twice a term

We are looking for trustees at our pioneering new school founded in 2018. It is located on an idyllic site in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by a bio-dynamic farm, 10 minutes south of Canterbury.

​We are looking for new Trustees to join our Board. We are a new school supported by a wide range of educational experts aiming be at the forefront of education whilst be rooted in community.

To complement the skills of our existing Board would ideally like to attract Trustees with knowledge of one or more of the following:

  • ​​Business Development / Strategy
  • Financial Planning
  • Fundraising
  • Marketing
  • Legal Expertise
  • Human Resources
  • Waldorf Education

The Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees meets regularly on a voluntary basis to shape, discuss and consider the vision, progress and welfare of the school. Their main roles of responsibility are to:

  • Ensure clarity of Vision and Ethos and that our Values Framework underpins policy and practice within the school
  • Lead on Budget approval
  • Create robust accountability for the Teachers, Management Team and Working Group
  • Ensure that the school is compliant with all its legal and contractual requirements.

​Trustees meet formally twice a term on zoom, so location is not a barrier, but we sometimes meet informally more often during this early stage of the school’s life.
