Hub Council - The ܼžѡˮ



Hub Council

Our academies are clustered together in hubs which are grouped according to both strategic and geographical areas. 

Every ܼžѡˮ academy is accountable to the trust board. A hub council is perfectly positioned to facilitate this and to ensure the academies within it can realistically deliver the trust's requirements and its core purpose of ensuring outstanding pupils outcomes.

Hub councillors, in close partnership with their academies, communicate and work in conjunction with the board, providing a vital link and additional level of accountability.
