Board of Directors
The Board of Directors has a current membership of 7 Directors. They meet at least three times per year. In line with the Articles of Association, our directors are also our members. They operate at a strategic level with ultimate control over the direction of the Academy Trust. There are three Directors that are not Governors and therefore do not attend the Local Governing Body meetings.
