The Guildford Education Partnership (GEP Academies) has announced that Jack Mayhew will be the chief executive officer (CEO) of GEP Academies at the end of May 2020.

He currently holds the CEO position of the Guildford-based Athena Schools Trust (AST) and he will continue in that role.

Jack Mayhew will be the new CEO of the Guildford Education Partnership Academies from the end of May. He will retain his position of CEO of the Athena Schools trust.

Both organisations have been working together on school improvement initiatives for over a year. One of Jack Mayhew’s main priorities will be to identify how and where both trusts can work together to continue to improve the quality of education provided across Guildford.

GEP schools are George Abbot, Boxgrove Primary, Sandfield Primary, Kings College, Guildford Grove Primary, Loseley Fields Primary and also Fulbrook School in Weybridge.

Athena Schools Trust comprises Guildford County School, Northmead Junior School, Pirbright School, Shalford Infant School, Stoughton Infant and Nursery School.

Mr Mayhew joins GEP following a successful career in education working in schools and trusts across Surrey and London. As founding executive headteacher of Athena Schools Trust, he is keen to bring his knowledge of school standards and collaborative multi-academy trust leadership to the role at GEP.

Chris-Tweedale has been GEP’s chief executive since 2018.

The current chief executive, Chris Tweedale, will be leaving the trust to take up a new post with the EU and other international organisations as an education adviser. He will provide continuity by working part time before leaving in July 2020.

    And he was appointed to this position how exactly? How come a non-paying, voluntary role as a governor at these schools has to be voted on by parents yet a hundreds thousand pound job for the boys is just announced with no input, options or question?

    Perhaps he has expertise in schools with falling OFSTED results but how are we to know?
