Academy Trusts are constituted as charitable companies limited by guarantee and are registered with Companies House. Because the Academy Trust is both a company and a charity, the Trustees are also Directors, and they therefore need to comply with obligations under company and charity law.

The Trustees are responsible for the three core governance functions: setting the direction of the Trust, holding the Executive team to account, and ensuring financial probity.






The 2015/16 financial statements for the Trust note that there were no related party transactions, and these statements are now published on the SBA website.
