The Trust partners of Ethos Academy Trust bring a long history of high-quality education and a strong pedagogy based on academic excellence across both primary and secondary education and specialist provision.

Trust Members oversee the achievement of the company objectives; appoint new Trustees; can amend the articles of the company and hold the land and buildings in trust.

The Trustees have strategic oversight and accountability of the MAT (Multi-Academy Trust) and they delegate responsibilities to the Academy Performance Review Committees for new and supported academies within the Trust.

Free School Governance Proposals

The Academy will initially have an Academy Performance Review Committee which will be formed during the pre-opening phase i.e. summer term 2022.  There will be up to 7 governors who will represent the local community that the school serves. We envisage representation from across the existing School Management Committees, education, the community, staff and parents/carers.

We are always looking to recruit and vacancies will be promoted through the Trust and School websites. If you are interested in registering your interest to become a local governor please contact Rebecca Smith on Consultation@eat.uk.com and we will contact you to discuss further in due course.

What Is a Funding Agreement?

The funding agreement provides the legal framework for an academy or free school to operate in and is an agreement between the Academy Trust (Ethos) and the Secretary of State. It sets out funding arrangements and obligations of both parties.
