Nethergate Academy

Our governance

Please follow this link to access information about how Greenwood Academies Trust is governed, including 

  • our memorandum of association 

  • our articles of association 

  • the names of our trustees and members. 

Each Academy within the Greenwood Academies Trust has its own Advisory Council (AAC) that works closely with each Principal. 

The Academy Advisory Council (AAC) is a small group that has staff, parental and community representation. It is not, however, the same as a traditional governing body as it has no legal responsibilities. These responsibilities are held by the GAT Trust Board. 

The AAC has three key roles: 

  • To advise and act as a critical friend to the Principal of the Academy and to advise the Board of Directors of the Greenwood Academies Trust about local issues they need to consider that affect the Academy. 

  • To represent the interests of the Academy community in the running of the Academy and to represent the Academy in its community. 

  • To provide support to the Principal of the Academy in undertaking appropriate day to day procedures that are essential to the life of the Academy, such as disciplinary and complaints procedures. 

The Chair of our Academy Advisory Council is Neville Bailey and they can be contacted via the academy office.

Jayne Francis Ward

Lorraine Levell
