Liz has an outstanding record of leading educational development and schools in a variety of different contexts, including abroad, and our educational community will greatly benefit from her vast experience. 

“We are delighted to welcome Izzy to take up the responsibility of continuing and further developing our schools. She was instrumental in the transformation of Yate Academy, leading the school to the top 1% of UK secondary schools and achieving exceptional results for disadvantaged and SEND students. Izzy’s vision for the future of our work at GLT is utterly compelling and inspiring, and I am excited to be working with her more closely.”

Liz Easaw commented: “I am excited to join the Greenshaw Learning Trust and get to know more about the schools and their communities. I am passionate about the power of education to change life chances and I believe that the Trust has the ambition to give every child the best supportive and inclusive learning experience possible.”

Izzy Ambrose said: “My passion is to provide the very best chance of success for all children, especially those who have barriers and disadvantages, and who need adults to advocate and support them. I am proud of what the Trust has achieved and excited about playing my part in shaping its future.”

To support Liz Easaw and Izzy Ambrose, Katherine Brown, Jonathan Heap and Patrick Farmborough have been appointed as secondary Assistant Directors and Sam Hunter as Primary Assistant Director.
