Our Local Governing Body

As part of the Samuel Ward Academy Trust the school is ultimately managed by the Board of Directors. Information about the trust governance can be found here. Responsibility for the school is delegated to the Local Governing Body listed below. Responsibility for key areas was previously handled by trust level committees within the old trust. The school is currently reviewing these arrangements as part of the Samuel Ward Academy Trust.
