Governance Roles

Become a Governor in one of our schools

School Governors play a hugely important role in making sure that every young person is given the best education, opportunities and experiences possible. They work as a team, overseeing the work of the school, acting as a “critical friend” to the senior leadership team and holding the school to account for performance and development.

If you are over 18, passionate about education and about helping young people achieve their potential, why not consider becoming a Governor? We are always on the lookout for people who share the mission, vision and values of the Trust and who can bring experience and leadership to support and challenge our schools. We offer training and support to help Governors fulfil their roles successfully and our Governors’ network helps all our Governors to learn from each other and to share experiences and ideas.

If you wish to become a governor in one of our schools and help serve as a key link between the school, parents/carers and the local community, please contact us here

Register your interest in becoming a Trustee

Strong boards comprise diverse individuals who represent their communities. As a collective, trustees should possess a wide range of skills and experiences. Onboarding people from different backgrounds and professional fields such as law, HR, IT, and finance will ensure the board makes the best decisions that benefit young people.

A trustee’s primary responsibility is to hold their trust’s leadership team to account through strategic decision-making, ensuring the trust meets its short- and long-term goals. As part of this, you’ll need to dedicate up to eight hours per month to the role and attend up to nine meetings across a 12-month period.
