Directors

St Hybald’s Academy trust is a charitable company limited by guarantee. It has two layers of governance:

The members of the trust are akin to shareholders and have ultimate control over the direction of the Academy Trust. They ensure the charitable company achieves its objectives, signs off the financial accounts and annual report. They may also be required to appoint new directors as and when vacancies arise.

At St Hybald’s Academy we have a maximum of five members:-

Mr S Bontoft
Mr J Irving

Mr A D West
Executive Head Teacher
Chairman of the Board of Directors

The Directors of the trust are responsible for the three core strategic functions along with ensuring compliance with Charity & Company Law and the Academy's Trust Funding Agreement. The members of the Trust are also Directors.

The three core strategic functions are:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the Executive Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure it's money is well spent.
