They have a number of statutory rights and responsibilities that are set out in the Academy Trust's Articles of Association.

The reserved powers of the Members are:

  • To review and amend the Articles of Association which are the constitution of the Academy Trust specifying the composition of the membership and how it conducts business;
  • To change the name of the Academy Trust;
  • To appoint and remove of the majority of Trustees;
  • To receives an annual report from the Trustees and the CEO on the Academy Trust's performance;
