Volunteer Trustee Directors - Multi Academy Trust

Lichfield Diocese Board of Education
Bridgnorth, Shropshire
Voluntary position
Closing date
16 Jul 2024

Shropshire Church of England Academies Trust is being formed through a partnership between Hereford Diocese and Lichfield Diocese who are working with a group of 8 like-minded schools who wish to come together to formalise a new academies trust for the benefit of their pupils, staff, and their communities.

We have received a Department for Education Trust Establishment Grant to establish a new Multi Academy Trust .

We believe that to enable schools to flourish in a changing educational landscape, it is essential to participate in the change and reformation of the education system in ways that leave schools with strong structures, strong support, and good collaboration.

This MAT has been approved by the DfE as an option for any schools in Lichfield or Hereford Diocese within the Shropshire area.

This trust is open to all maintained Voluntary Aided and Voluntary Controlled Church of England schools across Lichfield Diocese or Hereford Diocese and Single Academy Trusts, along with any Shropshire LA or Telford and Wrekin LA maintained community schools who feel the vision and values of the MAT align with their own.

The trustees of the academy trust are both charity trustees and company directors. The Academy Trust Handbook refers to them as trustees. However, in some academy trusts, such as church academies, those on the board are known instead as ‘directors’. In church academies, the term ‘trustees’ is reserved for those on the board of the separate trust owning the land.

As the trust begins its development with the first group of schools joining the MAT, Members are seeking to build an effective and diverse board of Directors with the right skills, expertise, behaviours, and capacity. Together with the interim CEO the Directors will shape the vision and values of the trust, to deliver an excellent education for current and future pupils.
