Faringdon Learning Trust CEO Duncan Millard is set to retire at the end of the summer term, effectively ending on 31st August 2023.

Duncan said: “This has been something I have been thinking about for some time and now feels the right time to leave. My decision to leave is a purely personal one, after 30 years in teaching, 22 years in senior leadership and five years as CEO, I am looking forward to spending some quality time with my family.

Faringdon has been a significant part of my life, having first started with Faringdon Community College in January 2003 and then latterly working as part of the Trust central team. I have really enjoyed all the opportunities that have been given to me. It has been a privilege to work as the CEO alongside the Heads both within the Trust and the Alliance to provide the very best education to our pupils. I will be doing my upmost over the next few months to ensure that our children continue to thrive and the Trust is ready for its next chapter”.
