We would like to thank you for taking an interest in our current career opportunities.

Pendle Education Trust is a family of academies in East Lancashire educating over 2100 children. The Trust is sponsored by Nelson and Colne College, an Outstanding Further Education college in Pendle. Established in 2013, Pendle Education Trust continues to grow, welcoming new schools to our family.

Currently we have five Academies within our family – Colne Primet Academy, West Craven High School, Castercliff Primary Academy, Pendle Primary Academy and Casterton Primay Academy.

Our focus is exceptional teaching, learning and leadership and meeting the needs of local families and the community. Through close collaboration with local partners and schools, we strive to deliver an excellent education for children in Pendle, Burnley and the surrounding districts.

Our Trust Board is made up of experienced voluntary professionals who are passionate about education and the local area.

Our vision is that every child should only be a short walk away from a world class school. We exist to empower, enable and inspire schools to provide an outstanding level of education and support through exceptional leadership, collaboration, innovative thinking and understanding of local needs.

In practice this means that we care passionately about all the children in our academies and believe in the difference our work can make to their lives.

We believe in:

  • Ambition for all
  • Collaboration
  • Individuality and Diversity
  • Innovation.
