The Board of TRUSTEES
Chair of Trustees
I am passionate about Cavendish School and its place within the Eastbourne community. Having been a Deputy Headteacher at the school and until quite recently, living close to the school, I know both it and the community it serves well.
In 2018 I retired, after 40 years in education and I hope that I am able to draw upon my experiences, where appropriate, to ensure Cavendish Education Trust is able to make a difference to young people’s life chances both now and in the future.
I am an experienced corporate and business lawyer having served as a partner in private practice and held a number of senior in-house general counsel and company secretarial roles in industry.
I am Sarah Bailey, mother to 2 young children who keep me very active outside of my long-standing Education career. I’ve worked in and with schools for 20+ years including as an ex East Sussex Primary school Headteacher, Secondary school senior leader and special school-teacher. I have worked for the last 4.5 years as Head of service in inclusion and Access to education in Croydon Local Authority. Deeply passionate about raising standards for all in every school community, particularly in championing the needs of our most vulnerable and ensuring outstanding safeguarding.
