A multi academy trust (MAT) is a legal structure that brings two or more schools under the control of one governing board, while still functioning as separate schools that retain their own identity. The Girls’ Learning Trust (GLT) is a MAT.
GLT has three levels of governance. Firstly it has ‘Members’, which are akin to the shareholders of a company, except that as a charity there are no profits. GLT may not have less than three Members with a majority who are not also Trustees. Members have an overview of the governance arrangements of GLT and appoint the Trustees.
