Sir Barry Day, OBE, has announced his plans to retire from his post as Chief Executive of the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust (GDFT) with effect from 31 December 2015.
The Trust was recently named by the Nottingham Post as the 26th largest company in Nottinghamshire with an annual turnover of over £140m. It has over 2,700 employees.
Barry has a long and successful history of school improvement and has worked in education for close to 42 years, 24 of these years as first the Headteacher of Greenwood Dale School and then as Chief Executive of the GDFT.
Barry has been Chief Executive of the GDFT for the last seven years. The Trust is a not-for-profit educational organisation that specialises in transforming schools operating in areas of economic and social disadvantage that are underperforming. Barry's strong and clear leadership has ensured that the Trust, which will have over 16,000 pupils in 30 primary, secondary and special school academies from 1 September 2015, is one of the strongest in the country.
The impact that Barry has had on improving progress, attainment and attendance is remarkable.
Previously, Barry was the Headteacher of the Greenwood Dale School which served one of the country's most disadvantaged communities in Nottingham. Over his 17 years as Headteacher, Barry transformed the poorly performing 11 to 16 school into an 'outstanding', over-subscribed 11 to 18 school and Ofsted judged his leadership to be 'outstanding'. Barry's determination to drive up standards of education in the UK drove him to take advantage of the opportunity to become a multi-Academy sponsor and share his expertise more widely with other schools in challenging circumstances.
