Governing bodies: Each school in the Trust is overseen by a governing body. Governing bodies are made up of members who are appointed in a number of ways: Trust governors are appointed by the Board of Trustees, community governors are appointed by the governing body, parent governors are appointed following ballots of parents, staff governors are appointed following ballots of staff, and the headteacher is a governor whilst they are in post.

Please visit the individual school's website for membership of the governing body.  Their websites can be accessed through the 'Our Schools' page.
