Trust Board

The Trust Board of Directors, the body that oversees the running of The St. Bart’s Multi-Academy Trust, meets at least once per term.

The Articles of Association, which defines the Trust’s constitution, makes provision for a board with a maximum of seven directors, of which a maximum of 25% are representatives of the Church of England. The St. Bart’s Multi-Academy Trust Board of Directors currently consists of:

  • Chris Brislen – Chief Executive Officer
  • Johnny Anderson – Chair (Business)
  • Colin Hopkins – Lichfield Diocese
  • Gill Latos – Trustee (Education)
  • Melanie Simmonds – Trustee (Finance)
  • Robert Knight – Trustee (Community)
  • Jill Bamford – Trustee (Legal & HR)
  • Cheryle Robertson – Trustee (Legal & HR)
  • John Walker – Trustee (Estates)

Although each St. Bart’s Academy has its own Local Governing Board, all governor appointments are approved by the Board of Directors.

Details of the constitution and membership of Local Governing Bodies are available on member Academy websites.
