Local Academy Councils

Each of our schools has their own Local Academy Council (LAC), who advocate for their school, within the context of the wider work of the Trust.  Members of LACs get to know their school really well, they support the Headteacher to make great choices and promote working together across the Trust with our other schools.  Find out more by following this link Join a Local Academy Council.
