David Hoare has been appointed as the new chair of Ofsted replacing Baroness Morgan who stepped down earlier this year when the then Education Secretary, Michael Gove, failed to renew her contract.

In January, Mr Hoare became a trustee of the Academies Enterprise Trust, which is responsible for running about 70 academy schools, in order to assist in improving the performance of the academy trust company  – a role the Department of Education has stated he will now step down from in order to take on his new position at Ofsted in September.

Mr Hoare has considerable business experience having been chair of DX Group, Virgin Express, Paragon Group and Laura Ashley. He is also a trustee of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
