Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

The Bridgwater & Taunton College Trust is a Multi Academy Trust sent up by the Secretary of State for Education as a company (No. 08098956) and a charity.  

 

It is therefore subject both to company and charity law. It has a Memorandum of Understanding and Articles of Association which govern how the Trust runs. The three Members of the Company are historically the Chair of Governors, Principal/CEO and Vice Principal of the sponsor, Bridgwater & Taunton College Trust. The Trust is run by the Board of Directors of the company who are also trustees of the charity. We call our Board Directors Trustees. Our Articles provide that the Members can appoint up to 20 Independent Trustees; the CEO of the Trust is also a Trustee. Additionally, we are required to have two Parent Governor Trustees.

We are also required to have an Accounting Officer/Executive Leader under the Academies Financial Handbook 2018. These positions are occupied by our Chief Executive Officer, Peter Elliott. Our Chief Financial Officer is Nicola Mould, again a post required under the Financial Handbook.
