Register of Interests

Our Trust Board is comprised of a team of carefully selected individuals. The Trustees have been appointed by the Bishop to exercise their unique skill sets in order to lead the Trust and its Academies towards excellence by ensuring the outstanding strategic direction.

Our Trust Board is made up of 3 Committees; The Audit and Risk Committee, The Finance and Resources Committee, and The Education Standards/Pupil Experience Committee (ESPE). Each Committee has a group of Trustees purposely selected because of their strengths to meet the responsibilities required of the specific Committee.

The Terms of Reference provide a more detailed description of the roles and responsibilities of each Committee.
