Sandra Appleby

Regional Director

I joined the Trust in 2015 and am currently one of four primary Regional Directors, as well as Principal of Greenfields Primary Academy in Kettering. In 2017, Greenfields was ranked in the top 3% of schools in England for progress in reading, writing and mathematics and was also rated as one of the top five schools in Northamptonshire for the same measure. The school was also recently crowned East Midlands Primary Champion at the prestigious TES Pupil Premium Awards, held at the House of Commons.

As a System Leader, my Regional Director role involves providing training, support and challenge to the Headteachers, senior leadership teams, staff and governors across my designated region in order to ensure the best quality of education for all children. I am also responsible for Trust-wide leadership of our strategy to support our most disadvantaged pupils, something we as a Trust share a deep passion for.
