It is with pleasure that we announce that Laura Gregory has been appointed as the first BPET Director of Education. From a field of outstanding candidates, we felt that Laura had the skills and experience for the role, along with being an excellent fit for an expanding, ambitious multi academy trust.
Laura has previously work for two academy trust’s and is currently working at a seven school trust as the Primary Education Lead across their six primary schools. Laura is also a primary leadership coach for Ambition Institute. Prior to this, Laura was Deputy and then Principal of a large outstanding primary academy in Hertfordshire – also one of the first designated as a Teaching Schools in England. While in this role, Laura became an OfSTED Inspector for primary and early years, before leaving to be a School Improvement Adviser for Buckinghamshire Local Authority. Laura brings a deep and innovative understanding of working in a multi academy trust and we believe she will be an asset to the team.
We are pleased Laura has accepted this role and is due to start on 1 September 2019. This is an exciting appointment that is part of our planned growth of the central team as BPET continues to grow in terms of the number of pupils over the next five years, until the schools are at capacity.
