Su Whelan - HISP Multi Academy Trust CEO
HISP Multi Academy Trust believe in building excellent educational environments that inspire and unlock potential in all our school communities. We currently have three schools within our Trust covering the age ranges from nursery to 16 with plans to expand and grow quickly across our geographical location.
Whilst we are currently a small trust, we are ambitious and have a broad range of outward facing accreditations that support our schools and those within our local area. We are part of the Education Endowment Foundation Network with our HISP Research School. Evidence informed practice underpins our ethos, professional development and school improvement. We have an outstanding provision for training new teachers through our Hampshire SCITT Partnership, which also supports career progression for staff within our Trust and links to higher education. We have recently been designated, by the DfE, with two Teaching School Hubs covering Portsmouth, Southampton, the Isle of Wight and the South Eastern and South Western parts of Hampshire. The core purpose behind the Teaching School Hubs is to become centres of excellence for teaching and leadership training and development.
Academic outcomes are important and schools, Academy Committees and Trustees will have an active role in ensuring that opportunities and outcomes are strong.
