Governance Structure

We are very proud of our governance structure and believe it is a strong feature of the Trust and our schools.

There are very clear Terms of Reference and a Scheme of Delegation for these groups which ensures strong accountability.  All meetings are clerked by a member of the Trust Governance team.  Zoe Stockley, Governance Adviser supports all governance personnel.

If you would like any more information or are interested in becoming a governor, please contact Zoe
