About us

Aldridge Education was established as a national multi-academy trust in 2016. Our entrepreneurial community schools are focused on their young people succeeding in reaching their potential. Our goal is that, by the age of 25, all Aldridge graduates will have experienced an outstanding and enjoyable education and be able to sustain the life of their choice. They will be independent, thriving economically and making a real, positive contribution to their communities.

As a new and growing multi academy trust we currently employ around 550 people. This is an exciting time for us as we build our systems, policies and processes as a national organisation and this role will be instrumental in shaping a new finance shared service operation.

We operate our schools in regional clusters and currently have four academies in Darwen, Lancashire as well as two recently joined academies in the Brighton area. We have plans for expansion within our clusters over the next few years and are expecting to be joined later in the year by a secondary school in London, as well as two university technology colleges.
