Leadership and Governance
All Academies within St Hilda’s Academy Trust are governed by one Trust (the Members) and a board of Executive Directors. Directors of St Hilda’s Catholic Academy Trust are appointed by the Members. Each Academy is represented within the St Hilda’s Catholic Academy Trust Board and can be confident that its interests are well represented.
The Academy Trust holds ultimate responsibility for all decisions regarding the running of the individual Academies. However, whilst some areas such as finance and HR are managed centrally, St Hilda’s Academy Trust delegates decisions relating to the curriculum, learning and teaching to the Local management Boards of the individual Academies and this enables more focused local control, even though St Hilda’s Academy Trust remains legally responsible for standards across all of its schools. To this end, it encourages rigorous monitoring and self-evaluation at a local level and ensures there is a strong and clear collaborative link between the schools involved.
