Effective governance and a clearly defined structure where all parties understand their roles and responsibilities is essential to providing the best education for our pupils. Our culture is to support our academies and enable them to thrive by developing and sharing best practice, providing rigorous internal challenge and implementing decisive early intervention.
We are proud to have a team who bring with them a wide range of professional and personal knowledge, skills and experience to support and challenge both our Trust and member Academies.
The Members of the Trust are similar to the ‘shareholders’ in a company and are responsible for strategic oversight, whilst the Trustees are appointed to challenge and scrutinise the strategic direction and day-to-day running of the company.
Each Trustee fulfills three particular roles:
Director – because the Trust is a company;
Trustee – because the Trust is a charity; and
Local Academy Board member – because the Trust is responsible for running the schools.
