Trust Governance

The Trust comprises of up to 5 (majority foundation) members.


Trustees are appointed by the members. The Board of Trustees deliver the 3 core functions common to school governance across the Trust:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

  2. Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

The Board of Trustees meet at least four times a year: in September to elect the Chair and agree Scheme of Delegation, and then at the end of each term.

"The Trust has highly effective governance practices in place. The board is reflective, and the governance structure and practices have evolved over time to be more effective because of this."
