All academies within the Trust are governed by the PEAK Multi Academy Trust Board and Members. Mrs Anne Martin FCCT is the Interim CEO and Accounting Officer of the Trust.
The Members sit above the board of Trustees. They are considered as the custodians of a trust and act as a check and balance on the performance of the multi academy trust. To ensure robust accountability within our governance structure, the members are independent of the trust board.
Members hold the Trust Board to account for the effective governance of the Trust and are tasked with assessing if the board is performing well and, as such are ensuring that the purpose of the trust, and its charitable object is being fulfilled. Members themselves have a minimal role in the actual running of the trust. It is the trust board, not members, who are the organisations key decision makers.
