Between 1 January 2021 and 31 August 2023 the Academy was governed by an Interim Executive Board. The purpose of the Interim Executive Board (IEB) was to provide interim expertise and high quality governance to address the school’s concerns and put in place a strategy for sustainable improvement, including the promotion of high standards of educational achievement.
The IEB had all the responsibilities of a normally constituted governing body, but additionally it was charged with conducting the school, “so as to secure, as far as is practicable to do so, the provision of a sound basis for future improvement in the conduct of the school”. The IEB combined the non-executive role of a governing body with a more operational role in order to bring about rapid improvement.
In June 2023, the SNMAT Board approved to appoint a Local Governing Body from 1 September 2023.
