Trustee Vacancies

We are always looking to recruit new trustees. In addition to ideally having experience in Education, we are also interested in broadening and deepening the skills of our existing trustee body in other ways. Therefore, we welcome applications from candidates with skills and experience in areas such as Safeguarding, Special Educational Needs, Health and Safety, Finance and Personnel. This is not an exclusive list of skills, but outlines some of the core ones required in a school governance team.
Trustees currently meet as sub-committees around once per half term (Education, Resources and Finance). Meetings are generally during the evenings, currently taking place remotely via Zoom. Full board meetings take place at least once a term.
Cambridge Steiner School does not generally appoint parents or close relatives onto its trustee body, to avoid potential conflicts of interest which may otherwise arise; however, we may exceptionally consider doing so for candidates who demonstrate proven ability in the skills identified above.
If you are interested in becoming a trustee of Cambridge Steiner School, please contact the school for an application form or to talk more about what may be involved in becoming a School Trustee.
