Trustees

The Board of Trustees has three core functions:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to account for the educational performance of the Trust schools and their pupils, and the performance management of staff
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the schools and making sure the Trusts money is well spent

The Trustees are accountable to the Members and report to them formally at the Annual General Meeting.


The Keys Academy Trust has eight Trustees who form the Board of Trustees. Trustees are appointed for their skills, knowledge or experience as needed by the Board. The Trust Board meet at least three times a year: the first meeting in the autumn to elect the Chair and agree the Scheme of Delegation whereby governance functions are delegated to Governors and committees.

Each Trustee also serves on Trustee Committees. These Committees have delegated powers and meet at least once a term:  

  • Finance and Audit Committee
  • Curriculum Committee and Church Ethos
  • Pay and Personnel Committee
  • Premises Committee
