On behalf of the St Ralph Sherwin CMAT Board I am delighted to announce the appointment of our new CEO, Kevin Gritton, who will start in his role on 1st September 2022.

Kevin brings to the role experience of over 25 years in teaching, including most recently as Headteacher at Saint Benedict in Derby, the largest school in the Trust, which moved from an Ofsted Special Measures rating to Good within 18 months under his leadership. He is also currently a Trust Leader of Excellence in Education and previously has been an Executive Headteacher supporting other schools in the Trust.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bishop Patrick for giving his approval for this appointment plus Fr Simon and Peter Giorgio, Director of Education for the Nottingham Roman Catholic Diocesan Education Service who, along with the SRS Trust Board, formed the selection panel for this post.
