Welcome to the website of Riviera Education Trust. In partnership to provide excellence for all our children.

Neil Smythe, Member

In my working life I am a Senior Strategic Change Consultant for a large national voluntary sector charity. I have experience of supporting trustees and management teams around governance, operations and change management. I feel that my experience and skills are easily transferable to working with Academy Trusts particularly at this time of great change within education.  I am particularly interested in the Riviera Education Trust as my son attended one of the schools.


I know that through my work with charities that education is one of the key factors in determining peoples’ life chances and well –being. Therefore I am very keen to be involved in shaping the future of our very young people by contributing to the exciting development and future of The Riviera Education Trust.
