Who we are
The members are akin to the shareholders of a company. They have ultimate control over the academy trust, with the ability to appoint some of the trustees and the right to amend the trust’s articles of association.
The trustees are responsible for the same three core governance functions performed by the governing body in a maintained school: setting the direction, holding trust leaders to account and ensuring financial probity. As trustees of a charitable company, they also ensure that the Trust complies with charity and company law requirements.
