A Primary Trust for Primary Schools

Lumen Learning Trust

Lumen Learning Trust Learning together for a brighter future

Directors (also known as Trustees)

The remit of Directors

Each Director is:

  • a director of the Academy Trust: the directors are responsible for the governance and supervision of the Academy Trust and its committees (including LGBs) and executives (including the EP and Head of Schools); and
  • a charity trustee with responsibility for protection of the assets of the Academy Trust.

In simple terms, the Directors "manage" the affairs of the Academy Trust and are responsible for its day to day running. 

The appointment of Directors

The Directors shall be appointed in accordance with Articles 46 to 50 of the Articles of Association.

Constitution of the Board of Directors

The Articles require there to be a minimum of three Directors (although the number of Directors is not subject to any maximum). The constitution of the Board of Directors is set out in the Articles. The Board is constituted as follows:

  • Up to 9 directors appointed by the Members;
  • the Executive Principal;
  • a number of Co-opted Directors (appointed by Directors who are not themselves Co-opted Directors).

In accordance with the Articles, the Directors shall elect a Chairman and Vice Chairman from among their number each academic year.

A database of the directors can be found by clicking on this link:  Get Information About Schools

The table below has been compiled in accordance with the AFH 2018; it contains the prescribed details of directors who have served at any point in the last 12 months.
