We are always interested in hearing from potential board members. Multi Academy Trusts need strong corporate governance and independent board members with corporate and business experience can bring in a welcome perspective to managing the organisation.

At the Bushey St James Trust we have recruited a range of individuals from a wide range of backgrounds with eclectic skills. These help to provide:

  • strategic advice on how the trust is run overall, including agreeing strategies for business growth or consolidation
  • specific expertise in improving performance
  • challenge to the Executive Principal, Finance Manager and other Directors to ensure that the education standards in the schools within the Trust continue to rise and that each school is run efficiently and delivering maximum value for money

Board members typically dedicate approximately 6 hours per term.
