The functions of the members of the Academy Trust include:

  • Overseeing the achievement of the objectives of the company
  • Taking part in Annual and Extraordinary General Meetings
  • Appointing some of the Trust Board
  • Signing off the company’s financial accounts and annual report
  • Power to amend the Articles of the company and, ultimately, to remove the governors/directors

Overall, Members usually have much more limited involvement in the management of the company than the Trustees.

Meetings - The members meet three times a year in September. January and June.
