BWT Governance

Brooke Weston Trust is a company limited by guarantee and a charitable trust.

The Board of Directors governs the academies within the trust and ultimately the funds granted for the provision of education within these academies, as set out in the Articles of Association. Click here for more information about the Board of Directors.

At Brooke Weston Trust we place great significance of the importance of governance in raising school standards and ensuring effectiveness in the running of our academies. Our governors and members are an essential force in providing strategic leadership, effective management and accountability across the Trust and bring with them a wealth of experience and expertise which help to raise standards of education.

The multi-academy setting provides excellent opportunity for governors and members across our academies to work together to develop and share best practice and ensure the highest standards are being met for every child, under the wider over-arching vision and values of Brooke Weston Trust.

Much of the work of the Board is delegated to committees as outlined in the Brooke Weston Trust Scheme of Delegation, including:

  • Finance and Resources Committee
  • Audit and Risk Committee
  • Remunerations Committee
  • Education Standards Committee and
  • a separate committee for each of the academies which works as a Local Governing Body.

The relationship between these committees is one of collaboration to achieve our common goal of ensuring that no child is left behind.
