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 eleven Trustees:

  • Johnny Anderson – Chair (Business)
  • Lisa Sarikaya – Chief Executive Officer
  • Colin Hopkins – Board appointed
  • Robert Knight – Trustee (Community)
  • Gill Latos – Trustee – Lichfield Diocese (Education)
  • Matthew Cliffe – Trustee
  • Rachael Day – Trustee

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

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