David Horn, CEO announces plans to retire in 2021


After 24 years, firstly as Headteacher at Beckfoot School and more recently as CEO of Beckfoot Trust, David Horn has decided it is time for him to retire in the summer of 2021.  


As David explains: ‘You all know that I love this Trust with its wonderful schools full of fantastic staff and children that are doing so wonderfully well. Picking the right time to leave an organisation you love is never easy, but the time is right for lots of reasons, not least the great strengths that are now apparent in all our schools. The Trust has a wonderful future ahead and I’m looking forward to working closely with the new CEO to be sure the process of handover is seamless. 


Recruitment for David’s successor will begin immediately giving plenty of time to be absolutely sure the Trust appoints the right person to lead its work in coming years.
