Making the Grade

Zoe Carr, CEO of WISE Academies, has a passion for high quality education and is driven by improving outcomes for children.  In addition to leading a successful and growing Multi Academy Trust and her work with the Regional School Commissioner, we are delighted to announce that Zoe has now been accredited as an Ofsted inspector.

As an experienced CEO, Zoe has extensive experience of working in settings that are deemed to be ‘outstanding’ and ‘good’.  She has also transformed settings judged to be ‘inadequate’ and made them into thriving academies through the sharing of best practice and ensuring better outcomes for all.

Zoe has high expectations of academies within the Trust and working as an Ofsted inspector will further strengthen her school improvement insight.  Her work with the Regional School Commissioner’s Head Teacher Board means that Zoe has significant experience of working to regulatory frameworks.

Zoe is delighted to have successfully completed the Ofsted accreditation process and taken part in the intensive Ofsted training.  She has already used this experience to further strengthen strategic and operational planning within her own Trust.  Zoe’s rigorous approach to data analysis, performance management and leadership development means that she is well placed to support the wider education sector through her work with Ofsted.

Congratulations to Zoe on achieving the high standards necessary to serve as an Ofsted inspector.
