Cathedral Schools Trust is pleased to announce that Eiron Bailey has been appointed as the very first Headteacher of CST Trinity Academy, their new secondary school scheduled to open in north Bristol in September 2019.

Eiron has worked as a Senior Leader at Bristol Cathedral Choir School (BCCS) for the last 9 years. He is passionate about seeing all children succeed and believes that education should focus on both academic and ‘whole person’ development. It has been this approach that has been so successful at Bristol Cathedral Choir School and Eiron played a key role in seeing the school to Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ status in 2017, his work in the report being referred to as ‘exceptional’. He is particularly involved in music and the arts as a national leader and speaker with an outstanding track record. He is currently musical director of the Bristol Youth Orchestra and has worked closely with Bristol Plays Music to develop their city wide strategy. He has lived in Bristol since 1998 and is married with two children.

Neil Blundell, Executive Principal of CST said: “Eiron is an exceptional leader and I am looking forward to working with him to deliver our new secondary school, CST Trinity Academy. We will be working closely with Bristol Cathedral Choir School (BCCS) to ensure that the music specialism at both schools complement each other and to look at ways that BCCS and CST Trinity Academy can work together to provide the very best educational outcomes for all our Students.”

Eiron Bailey said: “It is a great privilege to be appointed Headteacher of CST Trinity Academy and an exciting opportunity to build a world class school in north Bristol. Our 'whole child' education will build on the outstanding success of Bristol Cathedral Choir School and I look forward to creating an environment of excellence where all can succeed.”

The new secondary school aims to provide the very best educational outcomes for all our students. This includes a broad and balanced curriculum with a focus on preparation for working life as well as striving for academic excellence. Drawing on the experience and success of Bristol Cathedral Choir School, music and the performing arts will form a key part of our curriculum offer with enhanced opportunities designed to enrich the lives of all our students.
