Meet our Trustees

Trustees set strategic direction for the Trust, ensuring the provision of high-quality education and the achievement of positive outcomes for all our pupils.

With their collective expertise and dedication, Trustees establish a comprehensive framework that covers various aspects, including staffing, curriculum, admissions, and safeguarding. Financial oversight is another critical responsibility of Trustees, they monitor the financial health and sustainability of the trust, ensuring compliance with financial regulations and best practices. By providing robust financial governance, Trustees safeguard the long-term viability of the MAT and its ability to deliver excellent educational outcomes.
