The role of a Director

Our Board of Directors are responsible for making strategic decisions about the running of the trust. They play a critical role in effectiveness, standards and governance and have duties as both directors (under company law) and trustees (under charity law).

The day to day running of the schools within the trust is delegated to the local governing body and regularly monitored to ensure high educational standards.

Our Directors bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the trust.
