Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust

Trustees and Members

We have 4 Members of the Trust, they are collectively responsibly for ensuring the Trust is meeting its charitable objectives. The Members meet 3 times per year to consider the accounts and any governance arrangements.

Our Trust Board is constituted of 12 Trustees (in addition to the CEO) who collectively are responsible for the strategic direction of the Trust. The Board is the employer and accountable body to ensure regulatory and statutory compliance for the whole Trust.  The personal biographies of our Trustees and Members are included in the gallery below. 

The Board delegates some of its duties to committees of Trustees: Ethos Culture and Admissions, Finance and Resources and Scrutiny, Risk and Audit Committee. Trustees delegate further responsibilities to school governors (Local Governing Committees) under our Scheme of Delegation. Governors are responsible for the strategic oversight of the management and performance of their school. You can find out more about the various committees and the Trust's Scheme of Delegation here. You will find details of school governors on the individual school websites.
