CEO's Welcome

Chiquita Henson 
CEO Corinium Education Trust


As Chief Executive of The Corinium Education Trust, I am privileged to work with a great team of school leaders. Together, with our staff and trustees, we are making a difference and bringing about school improvement.
We share the same values and ambition for all across our learning community; we challenge and support each other.  We are committed to improving the learning and life chances of children and young people in Cirencester and across the South Cotswolds.
While we started small, we are a growing organisation. In September 2018 we sponsored Chesterton Primary School and welcomed the school into our trust as an equal partner. This openness and readiness to learn from each other, means The Corinium Education Trust continues to evolve and I value the contributions our school leaders and staff make to our development.


As chair of the Corinium Education Trust’s strategic leadership group which meets fortnightly, I am able to provide direction: through close collaboration and, in genuine partnership, we are finding innovative solutions to many of the issues schools currently face.


We are looking forward to working with our local community to plan for and open the new primary school in Cirencester. This is a long term project. We are grateful to the Regional Schools’ Commissioner and Gloucestershire County Council for the confidence and faith they have in our multi-academy trust.
I am very proud to lead our The Corinium Education Trust and of our achievements to date. To find out more about what we offer and how you can be a part of our journey, please contact me on
