During a long career in the education sector, Clive Bush has been a teacher, a headteacher of three successful secondary schools, the National Director of the Secondary National Strategy and the Chief Executive of the Active Learning Trust. He and colleagues established the Trust in 2012 and since that time it has grown to include fifteen primary and two secondary schools.
