Governance

The Governance of a Multi-Academy Trust is slightly different to that of a maintained school.  The first layer of overarching governance is that of Members.  Members are responsible only for fundamental decisions such as changing the constitution of the academy trust as well as making fundamental decisions relating to our academy trust.

Our Members

Mr Tom Harpe – Chair of Members

Mrs Rose Bainbridge
Mr Stephen Gibson
Mr Peter Tallentire

Below Members are Trustees who fulfil the roles traditionally done by governors. As with governors, our Members promote the vision, ethos and strategic direction of Stanley Learning Partnership and oversee the running of our Multi-Academy Trust as a whole.

Our Trustees

Mr Tom Harpe – Chair of Trustees

Prof David Wooff
Mr Malcom Webb
Mrs Tracy Davinson

Mr Mark Stewart is our CEO.

Local Governing Bodies

At the heart of Stanley Learning Partnership we beleive that every school within our Partnership is unique.  We respect and celebrate our differences and endeavour to retaine the individual ethos and vision of each school.  Unlike many other Multi-Academy Trusts, cach school has their own Local Governing Body which includes representatives from our community, parents and staff.  For more information about a specific Local Governing Body please click on the relevant school below:

Statutory information

As a Multi-Academy Trust we have a statutory obligation to publish various documents including our Memorandum of Association and Audited Accounts.  Such information and more can be found by visiting our Important Documents page.
