A message from the leader of our Trust, our Chair of Members:
I am very proud to have been a part of the Trust’s journey over the years and feel passionately that one of the most important ways for the Trust to thrive is through excellent governance.
The local governing bodies (LABs) set the tone and policies for the school, and ensure the school is going in the right direction. We pride ourselves on recruiting good quality governors who can use their expertise, so we co-opt governors where they have the skills that can add value for the whole school and, in turn, the Trust. I am excited to see where the next few years take us, but we can only fulfil our mission by working together, with the support of our outstanding team of volunteer LAB members, Trustees and Board Members.
Expert Governing Team
We are proud of the expert governing team at Vantage Academy Trust, to ensure best practise and accountability our governance is organised into three key layers, with our Members Board sitting at the top; as a charitable company, our Trust Members Board ensure that they comply with charity and Company law requirements.
Our Trustees sit below the Members Board and are responsible for the strategic priorities of the Trust. On a local level, Local Advisory boards (LABs) hold each school Principal to account for what is delivered in each academy.
