After a highly distinguished career of over 39 years in the teaching profession, The Trust’s CEO Jo Appleyard has made the decision to retire as CEO of The Dunham Trust on 30th April 2019.

As the Headteacher of Elmridge Primary School, Jo has been responsible for the creation of The Dunham Trust and its growth as a multi-academy trust community of five schools. Jo’s impact not only reached schools within The Dunham Trust, in her role as a National Leader of Education, Jo has made a positive impact supporting many schools across the region and still plans to support the Education sector.

We would like to thank Jo for her 22 years of dedicated leadership and service to Elmridge Primary School and more recently The Dunham Trust.
