Having graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with BA (Hons) Secondary Education in Physical Education, Mr Trainor began his career as a PE teacher at a school in East Lancashire. Since beginning teaching in 1998, he has worked in 5 successful schools, albeit in vastly different contexts, holding senior leadership posts in 3 schools as Assistant Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher, before becoming Vice Principal at Manchester Health Academy. As well as his role in schools, Mr Trainor has also worked as a consultant, supporting schools across the UK to develop high quality teaching, learning and pastoral care. This has allowed him to work with over 100 different schools over 3 years building up a wide range of experience and ideas to use in his work at the academy. Mr Trainor joined Manchester Health Academy in September 2017, and is responsible for leading the behaviour and ethos areas of the academy. He is very keen to ensure that the young people at academy develop the necessary mindset, skills and attitudes to learning to be successful throughout the time at the academy, but in also what they choose to do in the future. Mr Trainor serves as a governor at our Partnership Primary School, St Wilfrid’s Primary.
