Appointment of Mr T Leverage as CSEL

Dear Parents and Carers

I am delighted to announce that the process of recruitment of a CSEL (Catholic Senior Executive Leader) for the Our Lady of Lourdes Multi-Academy has been successfully concluded with the appointment of Thomas (Tom) Leverage.

This key appointment for our growing Multi-Academy has been made jointly with the Holy Family MAC (a family of schools on the Warwickshire/Worcestershire border) and follows a robust selection process facilitated by Satis, an educational recruitment agency and the support of the Birmingham Archdiocese Education service.

Tom will commence his role as Joint CSEL at the start of 2021 and will lead both Multi-Academies to a proposed merger over the following 18 months in line with the Diocesan Academy Strategy.

This key appointment marks a major milestone in our Multi-Academy’s development strategy. This will ensure pupils, their families, staff and the community we serve are part of a wider and stronger Catholic family of schools, with the highest expertise to ensure the very best education, support and guidance for all. It will further enable the sharing of school
improvement strategies, resources and services more effectively and will provide consistent and continuous support for all pupils in every school.

M.A. Tilt
Chair of Directors
