Learning Trust

The Trust's Structure

  • The Trust is strategically led by a Board of Trustees – chosen for their skills set
  • Our Board has eight Directors/Trustees
  • The main Board of Trustees meets each half term. In addition, the Finance Committee meets three times per year.
  • Each school maintains its Local Governing Body (LGB) and that must consist of at least two parent representatives. Some schools share a governing body.
  • The scope of the authority of the Board and the LGBs is set out in two documents :
    • Terms of Reference
    • Schemes of Delegation
  • Trustees are appointed by (and may be removed by) our six Members who oversee the achievement of the Trust’s objectives.
