Central MAT Team

'I am delighted to take up the position of Chief Executive Officer of SECAT. The MAT is now in its third year and has grown since its inception. 

It is an exciting time to be leading the Trust. Some of our schools have new leaders and many staff have migrated towards the excellent schools we have in Shoeburyness. 

I look forward to continuing to develop the curriculum, leadership and sustainability of the Trust. Our aim is always to work with our local community. This will continue as will our work with other MATs and schools in the surrounding areas.

Together, we will make a difference to children and young people's lives.'

Ruth Brock
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Schools within Shoeburyness have a tradition of working together for the benefit of the young people in our community. SECAT’s vision is to become the most outstanding Educational Partnership nationally through achieving outstanding outcomes for the young people in our community. We will do this by providing an engaging, challenging and linear experience from 3 to 19 which equips young people to live happy and successful lives.
The Central MAT team operate from SECAT House, which is the Multi-Academy Trust Head Office and is in the grounds of Thorpedene Primary School, one of the 6 schools in our MAT. The Chief Executive Officer, Acting Chief Financial Officer, Finance Project Manager and Administration Assistant to the CEO, all have responsibilities within the MAT. 
SECAT has a responsibility to ensure all our young people receive the best provision possible. This is what we intend to do; to make full and flexible use of all the expertise, resources and facilities across the Trust for the benefit of all.

Each school has a Local Academy Committee, to which the Academy Trust Board delegate power and responsibilities.
