We can help Headteachers and Governors of schools considering converting to academy status establish the Academy Trust and understand the implications of doing so.
The Academy Trust establishes and runs the “academy” i.e. the new school. The Academy Trust holds the assets and contracts of the school, employs its staff and receives its funding.
Academy Trust can be structured in different ways depending upon the model chosen. The different models are single sponsored Academy Trust, Multi Academy converter model or Umbrella Trust.
Common to all will be the creation of a charitable company comprising members and directors/ trustees. They may delegate matters to a Local Governing Body fort he school and create other committees.
We can help and advise in most areas on these important conversions and appreciate the importance of the culture driving the process.
