Lorraine Swanson

Director of Business and Operations

My key role is providing the strategic leadership and management for the non-teaching related services within the Solent Academies Trust. My constant aim is to ensure that the resources of the Academies are applied efficiently and effectively to achieve the educational aims.

The Trust

From a financial point of view, being part of a multi academy trust has brought many economic advantages, such as centralised services and being able to focus funds where they are needed. We have now been able to offer more opportunities for all staff to work across schools, sharing resources and expertise. Spending time at all schools  I get to see how valuable resources are to enable everyone to aspire and achieve.

My role provides me with ever-changing opportunities to develop and no two days are ever the same!
