Helen Scott - Deputy Chief Executive Officer

As Deputy CEO of Aspire, I support schools and their leaders in our endeavour to provide children with the very best educational opportunities.  I have a wealth of experience in working with primary schools in a number of different contexts and a track record of successful school improvement.

As a National Leader of Education, I have supported a number of individual schools in different circumstances, assisting them to prioritise actions needed in their schools and enabling their leadership teams to work more effectively.  I have also led development initiatives with groups of headteachers, helping them to identify areas for improvement and strategies for change.  At the request of other Multi Academy Trusts and Local Authorities, I continue to work with schools outside of Aspire, in addition to leading various initiatives within the Aspire MAT.

Before taking up the position of Deputy CEO, I led two schools from a good to outstanding OFSTED grade as Headteacher and also accepted a secondment to a school in Warrington, which I lead through a difficult interim period.  By working to ensure that we all benefit from sharing expertise and developing best practice, I hope to help secure the provision of high quality education which I believe is every child’s entitlement. 

I enjoy spending my spare time with my family or at the gym.
