The Trustees of the school have legal responsibilities as set out in the Funding Agreement and in our Memorandum & Articles of Association. Members of the Board of Trustees are comprised of Foundation Trustees (nominated by The British & Foreign School Society [BFSS], Brunel University and The Senate of the University of London); elected Parent/Carer Trustees; Community Trustees; and Staff Trustees.
The Board of Trustees meets formally once per term and committees also meet on a termly basis. The duties are varied and include setting an annual budget, ensuring that statutory policies are in place, and providing support and challenge for the school’s Senior Leadership Team.
