GLT Governance

Girls' Learning Trust Governance & Executive Team Structure

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 can have up to five Members, some of whom may also be Trustees who sit on the GLT Board (see below) and others who are independent. Members have an overview of the governance arrangements of GLT and appoint the Trustees.

Name Date Appointed
Hamza Aumeer 1.9.15
Donna Evans 1.1.16
Chris Goostrey 1.9.15
Tony Hyams-Parish 1.9.15

1 member (vacancy) 

 

The second level of governance is the GLT Board (the board of trustees/directors). There are currently 9 trustees/directors on the GLT Board which is:

  • The overall governing body for GLT and all the schools within
  • Responsible for setting the strategic direction for GLT including key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Accountable for the educational performance of the Trust and all academies within
  • The employer of all staff in the Trust
  • Responsible for determining Trust wide policies as appropriate

The following people make up the GLT Board:

The third level of governance comprises the Trust Committees and Local Governing Bodies (LGBs).  The Board has a number of Trust Committees that report to it, to enable it to carry out its functions.  These include Finance and HR and these committees are made up of Trustees from the Trust Board and Governors from the LGBs.

Each school within GLT has its own LGB. The LGB is a committee of the GLT Board and:

  • Is responsible to the Trust Board for the performance of the school
  • Supports and challenges the Headteacher and the school leadership to secure strong student
  • performance
  • Provides oversight and monitoring of the school’s activities to ensure an excellent standard of
  • education is delivered
  • Achieves the KPIs set by the Trust Board and delivers the school development plan
  • Contributes to the wider work of GLT through the membership of the Trust committees
