Academy Transformation Trust that runs Mildenhall College Academy appoints Sir Nick Weller as new CEO
A multi-academy trust has appointed a new chief executive officer.
Academy Transformation Trust (ATT), which has 21 academies across the country including Mildenhall College Academy, will be led by Sir Nick Weller.
He is currently CEO of the Dixons Academies Trust and will start his new role with ATT on November 1.
Pat Beanland, chair of trustees at ATT, said: “Sir Nick comes to us with a national reputation. He has been instrumental in leading Dixons to become one of the most respected multi-academy trusts in the country."
“We look forward to welcoming him and working with him as we continue to focus on transforming the lives of the children and young people we are privileged to serve.”
Sir Nick said: “It has been a great privilege leading Dixons for the last 16 years. In this time, we have grown from one single academy to 15 schools across four cities.
"I am incredibly proud of everything that we have achieved together in our unwavering commitment to challenging educational and social disadvantage in the north.
“Academy Transformation Trust is a larger, strongly-improving trust facing the challenges of a wider geographical spread.
"I am really looking forward to joining in November, and to working with the academies and the central team to build an even better future for ATT’s students and pupils.”
In this area, ATT also has Beck Row Primary Academy in Beck Row, near Bury St Edmunds, Great Heath Academy in Mildenhall, Westbourne Academy in Ipswich, Iceni Academy (Primary) in Hockwold, Thetford, and Iceni Aacedmy (Secondary) in Methwold, Thetford.
