How many second chances do you give her? How many second chances do C&YP have?

Hilary Macaulay 

Autumn 2014 Headteacher at Harris Academy Crystal Palace - Harris' flagship school which was at risk of being judged as Good had everything thrown at it  by the Trust to prevent that. Shortly after the inspection, HM was unemployed. 😲

Spring 2016 appointed as CEO for Merchants Academy Trust - 2 schools both judged as good when she inherited them, both ended up in special measures in September 2017 after 18 months of HM's leadership. 🙃 2735155 (ofsted.gov.uk) 

September 2017 appointed as CEO for Venturers Trust. Most of the schools she was responsible for entered a failing Ofsted category under her leadership. She went on gardening leave soon after and then resigned in the spring term. 😠 Head of eight Bristol schools Hilary Macaulay resigns after less than a year in the role - Gloucestershire Live 

January 2019 appointed as Headteacher for Skinners Academy, Kent - Left less than 2 years later. 😮 An ex-Army officer is to become Skinners' Kent Academy's new head teacher as revolutionary principal Sian Carr stands down - Kent Live 

April 2021 appointed as CEO for Veritas Educational Trust with just one school. 🤔 Appointment of Executive Headteacher and Chief Executive Officer at Veritas Educational Trust - London Diocesan Board for Schools (ldbs.co.uk)
