Our Academy


The purpose of the Interim Executive Board (IEB) is 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 has all the responsibilities of a normally constituted governing body, but additionally it is 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 combines the non-executive role of a governing body with a more operational role in order to bring about rapid improvement.
