Stephen Munday


Stephen Munday is the Chief Executive of The Cam Academy Trust and the Executive Principal of Comberton Village College.

In 2011, the Comberton Academy Trust was formed. This oversaw Comberton Village College becoming an Academy. Now called The Cam Academy Trust, it currently oversees 7 schools, (primary, Secondary and Sixth Forms) including a Free School in Cambourne, Cambridgeshire that was judged outstanding at its first inspection and has been designated as a Teaching School.

Educated in Canterbury, Stephen studied Economics at the University of Cambridge. He then went on to qualify as a teacher attending the Institute of Education London, where he also gained an MA in Economics Education.

In 2009 he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by Anglia Ruskin University for services to education and the community and in 2013 was awarded a CBE in recognition of his services to education.

Stephen works in several advisory capacities with the Department for Education, including the Teaching Schools’ Council and the Eastern Region Headteachers’ Board and is a National Leader of Education with the National College for Teaching and Learning, and an Associate Head with the SSAT. In 2015, he was asked to chair the expert group that was tasked to produce a Framework of Core Content for ITT courses in England. This was published, together with the accompanying report, in July 2016. He is now working with groups to take this work forward.
