GNET Trust

Our Board

Greater Nottingham Education Trust has a team of members and trustees whose combined skills, experience and knowledge support the Trust’s vision and purpose.

The Board of Members is made up of at least three people - original signatories of the Memorandum and any additional Member appointed by the Members themselves by special resolution.

The Trustees are responsible for the general control and management of the administration of the Trust in accordance with provisions set out in the Articles. The Board is responsible for ensuring that high standards of corporate governance are maintained. It will exercise its powers and functions with a view to fulfilling a largely strategic leadership role in the running of the Academies. This will allow greater opportunities for collaboration not only with regards to teaching but also in terms of the management of each Academy, including the procurement of goods and services.

The Academy Trust will have up to eight Trustees (but no less than three) and also include the CEO.

Trustees serve a four year term of office.
