Simon Taylor, OBE
Simon has worked in education since 1985, always based in the North East, across schools in Northumberland, Newcastle and Gateshead. He was appointed Headteacher at The King Edward VI School Morpeth in 2007, a founding school of the Three Rivers Learning Trust. Simon became CEO of the Three Rivers in 2018 and has overseen its growth from 3 schools to 9 schools, prior to its merger with Tyne Community Learning Trust to form Cheviot Learning Trust. Simon has also worked with several schools across the region as a National Leader of Education and, in January 2023, was awarded an OBE for services to education.
Simon is excited to be part of the formation and development of Cheviot Learning Trust and looks forward to working with both new and familiar colleagues on this project.
