Local Governing Body

Sapientia Education Trust holds ultimate responsibility for all decisions regarding the running of the individual academies. However, it delegates some of the decisions to the Local Governing Body to enable a more focused local control, though it remains legally responsible for standards across all academies within the MAT.

Although the Local Governing Body is constituted in an advisory capacity to the Sapientia Education Trust, they play a crucial and essential role in raising attainment and achievement of each academy through:

  • monitoring the academic performance of the academy;
  • holding managers to account;
  • supporting academy students and staff.

The membership of the Local Governing Body consists of a Staff member, two Parent members, members from local businesses, members who have been parents previously and members from surrounding educational establishments.

The members of the Local Governing Body are:

  • Jennifer Lonsdale (Chair)
  • Gavin Green (Academy Headteacher)
  • Martin Turner
  • Jules Mutton (Parent Governor)
  • Tim Stevens (Parent Governor)
  • Cathrine Lane (Support Staff Governor)

The Local Governing Body may be contacted by:
