10 December 2021

Chris Brislen, CEO The St. Bart’s Multi-Academy Trust

Christopher Brislen, the C.E.O. of St. Bart’s Multi-Academy Trust has retired after an inspirational and remarkable career in education. 

Chris leaves behind a legacy that has seen the trust grow from its original three members of Belgrave St. Bartholomew’s Academy, Cranberry Academy and St. Michael’s Community Academy in 2013, to a total of nineteen academies, spanning four Local Authorities in just eight years!

The staff and pupils would like to thank him for everything that he has done for them, and wish him well for a long and happy retirement.  Thank you Chris!

The amount of £929.50 was raised as a leaving donation for Chris and this was passed on to Willowbrook Hospice in memory of our recently departed Trustee, Ms. Melanie Simmonds.
