Please inform the school office if you require any of our documents in an alternative format such as large print, Braille, or help in understanding it in your language.


Governance Structure

In addition to the agreements made on conversion with the Government's Education and Skills Funding Agency, Lincolnshire County Council (as the Local Authority) and the Diocese of Lincoln, the Academy is controlled by groups of people defined below:



The Academy has a group of Members that were originally responsible for its formation and who subsequently maintain its existance as an organisation.  They are responsible for maintaining  a Board of Trustees that oversee the general operation of the Academy.



The Trustees are elected to maintain the Academy as a charitable company limited by guarantee, but also have the position  of Director in the terms of the Academy's registration at Companies House.  The Academy generally uses the term of School Governor to include both positions of Trustee and Director (except where these need to be explicitly stated).
