The duties and functions of Governors are defined in the instrument and articles of government for schools.
The Governing Body are appointed by the Academy Trust and are responsible for the executive management of the school. The process for Governor elections is set out in the Academy articles of association and agreed between the Academy Trust and the Secretary of State. The Governing Body meet once each term and a copy of the agenda and minutes of the their meetings are available by request, for parents to read.
An Academy Trust is a registered charitable company responsible for the running of the academy and has control over the land and other assets. It has a strategic role in running the academy, but delegates management of the school to the governors.

They are particularly keen to recruit people with Business, HR, Law and/or Accounting experience.
