Connected Learning

The Key to Success

Trust Members

Members have ultimate control of the Academy Trust because they can appoint and remove the Trustees and they can change the constitution. Though members have a very important role to play in overseeing the MAT, they will typically be less directly involved in the running of it than the Trustees and may only meet once a year.
