Structure and Remit of the Governing Body
The governing body meets once each academic term. The governing body establishes an overall framework for the governance of the academy and agrees membership of committees and their terms of reference. The governing body receives reports and policy documents from its committees for ratification. It monitors the activities of the committees through the minutes of their meetings.
The governing body is responsible for setting general policy, adopting an annual plan and budget, monitoring the academy budgets and making major decisions about the direction of the academy, capital expenditure and senior staff appointments.
