CEO Learning Set: Fostering Collaboration and Financial Sustainability

4th May 2023

Windsor Academy Trust (WAT) today hosted a collaborative learning set for educational leaders from academy trusts across England, chaired by our CEO, Dawn Haywood, as part of our collaborative approach to system contribution. 

The event focused on sharing knowledge, best practice and insights on financial sustainability in education and involved a fantastic morning of learning, collaboration, and growth. 

Our esteemed guests had the opportunity to visit one of our schools - Windsor High School and Sixth Form or Colley Lane Primary Academy - which provided an opportunity to showcase our approach to financial sustainability and allowed for an exchange of ideas between the different trusts.

Rebecca Cox, CEO Hales Valley Trust
