The trustees work a lot like the governing body in a maintained school. They are responsible for setting the direction of the organisation, holding the executive team to account and making sure that the finances of the Trust are managed responsibly.

In an Academy Trust, the trustees must also ensure that they are complying with charity law and, as company directors of the charitable company, must meet company law requirements.

Like members, we are required to publish information about our trustees, their attendance at meetings and any business or other pecuniary interests they may have. You can download a copy of this information from the link below.
